Today I came across an old handheld PC (NEC MobilePro 790, to be specific - pictured) at a garage sale, and I was unsure whether I should buy the old Windows CE 3.x machine for $25. After researching the same machine on the internet, the lowest price was $190! I was surprised at how good a deal this was!
- It loads more quickly than any other PC I've ever used (well, then again, it is an embedded system...)
- It has a touchscreen (meant for a stylus, but still works with the finger). I wonder at times why this touchscreen technology isn't integrated in most modern notebooks.
- It's perfect for students - it's tiny and you can carry it around
Battery life isn't the bestTurns out it's better than my MacBook's :0
- Wouldn't fit in your pocket
- only includes a modem; no ethernet, sadly - but hey, at least it has IE!
