Switched from Newton to HP Palmtop!

Switched from Newton to HP Palmtop!

I traded in my Newton for an HP 100LX yesterday, and I am very pleased. The 100LX is really a Palmtop computer; the Newton is more of a Palmtop novelty item at this point. The Newton's interface is Really Cool, but it's not yet very usable as a personal assistant. For example, the Newton takes a long time to recognize and translate a phone number you jot down while talking on the phone. By the time it converts it to ASCII and displays it for confirmation, your conversation may be on another subject. If one of the 4's you jotted down was converted to a 9, you're in trouble.

My advice to others trying to decide between a Newton and a 100LX is this: If you're looking for a cool toy to amaze your friends, get the Newton. If you're looking for something that nobody else in your office has, get the Newton. But if you're looking for a nuts-and-bolts personal assistant that doubles quite well as a mini-computer, get the 100LX. The 100LX isn't pretty by comparison to the Newton, but it blows Newton out of the water in functionality and suitability to task.
