    I want a pda. what do you guys recommend/hate/use? i want wifi and that's pretty much it. a camera would be nice, and bluetooth too, but not essential.

    IMHO steer clear of CE devices. Palm is the way to go with some pretty outstanding pieces of software for almost any situation - video - MP3 - word processing - voice recording - remote controls - dictionary - Bible - email - photos - database - spreadsheet...you name it

    I have had several Palm/Sony (even Psion) PDA's over recent years and the Sony Clie (T665C series in my case) is outstanding. Sony do a lot of things badly (like Vaio etc) but their optics and screens are very good, especially if it is Japanese made. The Japs rule the world with quality, no doubt about it.

    If you want WiFi, the Palm Tungsten C is pretty cheap right now. Cruise on over to fatwallet.com and do a search. You should be able to find some nice deals.

    Well, pocketPC devices aren't all bad if they cover your needs. The For example, I use my Toshiba e740 for reading ebooks, browsing the web and reading news using wifi, watching divx movies and as a sort of wireless ipod when I'm around the house (you can stream MP3s and divx movies from your computer's hard drive--very cool). Age of Empires for PPC also isn't bad ;) Besides, Tungsten C doesn't even have stereo output.

    <shameless plug> if you're looking to get a PDA, I'd be willing to let go of mine for $250US (325 CAN) since I'm low on cash. Msg me if you're interested </shameless plug>
