If pocket pc's were any good, we'd all have them and there would be no need for larger sized ones.

Pocket pcs are very good - I'm browsing this forum and replying to this post with an Ipaq 4150 from the comfort of my bed! They're incredibly useful supplementary machines and should be covered more often

my pocket pc lots and lots!

I use it on the hospital wards, and means i no longer lose lots of vital bits of information that were originally kept on scraps of paper. Plus I have a couple of medical programs, but generally they cost a lot of money for what you get. And the WiFi on my 4150 is very cool at home...

But there isn't a great deal you can do with them, like fiddling with the registry etc. They are more a toy than a necessity. I guess that's why they are not covered that much, because they are more restricted in what you can do. I do find it amusing that the one I have is faster than the PC I used for 5 years at university. I am very happy with mine!

Big Ben, then you will be able to join those of us with 4150s in browsing and posting from the comfy depths of your bed!
