There is a great machine called the AlphaSmart Pro, which is an RS 100 with
a faster processor, PC and Mac data ports, etc. They're almost unheard of
because they're sold only through the educational channel, but you can buy
from the manufacturer. I think it's $295.

If you have more money, want a real screen, and go for really gorgeous
looks, Apple has finally started selling the eMate to individuals --
basically it's a Newton with a screen and keyboard in one piece. It's $800
and only comes in jade-green.

If I had any real money I'd buy either of these tomorrow.
