For the rest of the world that's £220, €315 and ¥44,000.

You would have to find a HPC2000 device really. So if you like the NEC's you are looking at a MobilePro 790 or 900 (900 not likely at that budget).

There is a list of devices to look out for here:

My recommendation would perhaps be the 790, as you could jsut move a lot of your applciations directly up to the new device. No need to get new builds for different CPU's.
Other than that on a lucky day there is a chance you could scrape in a hp 710 or a 720

Jornada 720's are good buys right now.They are selling for under $300 with accessories. I bought mine for $255 with a wireless card, dock, and others. I have seen better deals though.

I don't know who you stole that 720 off of PS, £145 for it with accessories... nice!

I paid £260 - $460 equiv - earlier in the year for one off of eBay... then again it was still shrink wrapped.

i agree that i should get win ce 2000 or up. but why would i pay $200 for a machine that is the hardware identical of a 780? the only difference is the mem and OS. is that going to make a hugely significant performance enhancement? a hp 720 would be good but i have not seen these less than 300 dollar deals. where could I find a mem from a 790 that i could use? also where can i find cheap Jornadas?
