    Ok my wife really relies on her palm pda for work and her palm m125 just died. Her birthday is next weekend and she really needs a new pda.

    We just bought a Mac and I am curious as to if Apple has anything that works better than a plam based OS? I would love to buy her an Ipod nano but she needs to be able to enter data away from the computer. Is a palm based OS the best way to go? And if so anyone have any personal suggestions?

    I should expand on my previous post.

    She uses it primarily for the datebook and address book features.

    As far as I know Palm is the best way to go for what your describing, plus its the most compatible with OSX. One of the Zire's should suffice. I personally like the Tungsten T5 myself.

    Another Palm to consider would be the Tungsten E2.
    Good luck!

    I want one so hard!

    It's real retro, yet people are developing OS X drivers for it.
    GROOVY! :)

    I used to have a Palm m500, my brother has a Zire 71, my dad has a Tungsten E, and none of us feel they were worth buying. Honestly, I'd just use a cell phone for mobile use. My Nokia N-Gage QD was free with a new plan in February, and it syncs with iCal and Address Book perfectly over Bluetooth using iSync. No drivers are needed, either: OS X automatically sends an iSync agent to the phone, it gets installed, and everything works perfectly. If I needed, I could install any number of Symbian OS applications on my phone and it would do just about everything a Palm could. Inputing new data on the go would be more painstaking, though.

    yeah she really needs to input data at the hospital.
    One question what is a Newton and where can I see one?

    How about a cell phone/ PDA combo...
    I just bought the new Blackberry 7100 and I love it...
    Plus it has all the functions you're looking for and with an extra program (don't remember which, try a forum search) you can sync it perfectly to your Mac.
