This is How *I* Roll


How do you roll? Recently I added the HP Jornada 728 to my collection of much-beloved gadgets, and it has made writing a joy again. I swear by my AlphaSmart (below), but can't email, read ebooks, or do research on it. I can on my Jornada. It is exactly like a laptop, but smaller. Same shaped keyboard, modem, Outlook, and all the other bells and whistles. At 64 MB it does everything I need it to do in a tiny package. A traditionally shaped PDA can't hold a stylus to it!


My AlphaSmart 3000 is no-nonsense, bare-bones, and allows me to focus on WRITING, nothing else. This thing is incredibly light, indestructable, and has run on the same AAA batteries I bought over a year ago without a twitch. I bought a retractable USB cable that I chuck right into my Vera Bradley laptop case with the Alpha, my Jornada, and a pack of notecards, and I am invincible!

This combination has rendered my Toshiba laptop and just about everything else (except my desktop PC) useless to me. I'm rollin' with the perfect combo. So... how do you roll?

So that's what an AlphaSmart is!!

I'm a laptop girl, but I want to get a pocket PC so I don't have to carry either the laptop or a notepad around with me everywhere I go.

If you love your laptop but wish it weighed less, the Jornada is a really good middle ground!

My Alphasmart is still on its orginal set of batteries--almost three years old.

I love it--despite its Fisher-Price appearance.
