Your choices include:

Amstrad PDA-600 (maybe DOS?)
Atari Portfolio (DOS)
Poquet PC (DOS)
GridPad (DOS, not very small)
HP handhelds
Dauphin DTR-1 (DOS/Windows)
Maybe a couple of others

None of those are cheap. Portfolios and Poquets seem to sell for well over
$100. Same for the gridpad. I dunno about the various HP handhelds, but I
suspect they're expensive too. I got (not yet -- it's on its way) my
Amstrad PDA-600 for $60. Dauphins are more than a Pilot.

Of the lot, the HP's are probably the most powerful.

Another option would be an early Newton or one of the machines that came out
at the same time (like the Zoomer).
