Like the E, the E2 I replaced it with has a measly 90-day warranty. I didn't get any extended coverage, hoping by the time it breaks (if not sooner) I'll be ready to replace it anyway. Ideally it'll last until I upgrade so I can give it to my wife, which is what I'd planned to do with the E but now it's too unusable for her (I could barely manage it in its crippled state).

Heh, my 4 year old Palm IIIc is still trudging on. I wonder if there is any remote control software for it

A few Mac users on the Missing Sync list recently posted that they've grown tired of Palm-related troubles (e.g. iSync support is lame) and are considering migrating to a Pocket PC even though they're not fond of Microsoft. For now Palm is still my best option and the E2 does nearly everything I want. Switching hardware and buying new software wasn't practical or affordable but eventually I may seriously consider the alternatives.

There is little difference in size between portables with a 13.3" screen and ones with 14.1" screens - might as well go with a 14.1" iBook.
With the same resolution I'd choose the smaller one, as I did with the 12" G3 iBook.
I base that on the Dell Inspiron 700m I just got - it is a 12" widescreen, with cheap plastics, but a beautiful 1280 x 800 12" widescreen LCD.
That would certainly tempt me in an iBook. Gee, am I back on topic now?
I sure hope the 512MB is soldered to the board, so I don't end up tossing a 256MB chip to upgrade.
Seems unlikely, as someone mentioned. Still, better that than tossing a 512MB SODIMM for 1GB. Two expansion slots would be nice, but also unlikely. Apple's stance on RAM options remains frustrating, e.g. no zero-RAM purchase option, which increases the need to replace a DIMM to get the amount you really want in two-slot systems.
