    So let's make A wish list. we talk about the idea that apple might make a pdathat's great that's what this sight is all about. I've also seen a lot of ideas put in about whaty people would like to see in a pda from apple. I'd like to get some input from every one on what we would like to see from apple. After this has gon on for a while I'll send on the finished master list to apple an dyou can too let's make this thing happen. If Apple's willing to listen I'll talk.

    I'd like to see a mini computer. I figure that they can get the original iMac into a pda sized deal. The ibook's screen is at a resolution of about 107 dpi based on that they could get a 640*480 into less than 6*4.5 inches and that size is a workable size for the system:

    -G3 @233Mhz or greater.
    -640*480 pixel display
    -10GB hd
    -128mb's Memory (up to 512mb one stick)
    -1 Firewire
    -1 USB
    -10/100 Ethernet

    -Mac OS X v10.x
    -Mac OS 9 v9.x
    -iTunes iPhoto etc.
    -iGetOrganized!! (or something)
    -Appleworks
    -handwriting recognition like the Newton
    -Portrate or Landscape views.

    It could act as a HD like the ipod does when pluged into the computer just you would see everything. Also some things could hotsync like the address book's and iGetOrganized!!

    I would like to see an iBook that is really small, with a 8in color display, and dvd rom. That would be cool. Also it would have 1 fire wire and 2usb ports. That would be nice.

    but small screens are annoying and what you are talking about would cost just as much as a laptop.

    when you say small screens are annoying do you mean the resolution like dpi the size like inches or the size in pixels? I know that working with a low pixel screen like 640*480 is a little annoying but most pda's have a resolution of like less than 320*320. 640*480 would be better than anything I've seen yet. I wouldn't want any drives in it other than the hd because drives are big but maybe a discount on a firewire combo drive when you get them together.
