I have used mine daily for almost 7 years now. It may be old but in this day of Droids, iPhones and the like I have never found a sharper tool. Palm's calendars, notepads and contact management tools are still the gold standard. If you need a device that is a real workhorse--and not just something to play with, you just might find one of these beauties will fit you perfectly.
If you use 64-bit Windows 7 or above, you might want to visit aceeca.com for 64 bit drivers. That way your desktop software will hot sync. Works great on mine. Also, if you need the space, palmpowerups sells drivers to support SD cards up to 32 Gb. They do cause a very slight amount of instability but nothing a rare reset and re-seating of the SD card won't fix. mine goes for weeks on end with nary a hiccup. Totally worth it for the extra storage space. If you have screen calibration issues, look for a place that can install a new glass digitizer.
And finally, a wireless IR keyboard or a bluetooth model will increase the usefulness by 1000 percent. There are still thousands of programs out there for these units. I have seen everything from photo editing software to a CAD program.
Again I love mine. I am thinking about buying a spare. Mine is in constant use and I just don't want to be without one.
