Good keyboards for taking notes:

Radio Shack Model 100/102
NEC PC8201A (M100, but some differences (or vice-versa?))
Epson HX-20 (Not as good, but adequate)
Cambridge Z88 (Never used one, but looks good.)
Radio Shack WP-2 (Word processor, similar to m100)

There are a couple of newer m100-type machines that can act as a keyboard
for a Mac or PC as well. And, of course, Apple's E-mate (or whatever it's
Or pick up a used '286-ish PC laptop. Generally decent machines, run DOS
(lots of available word processors), and cheap.
