    ...and which one(s) do you either recommend or disdain?

    I have a Sony Clie as well, might just be that model. I don't ever use it unfortunately, although I like the handheld very much it's pretty much in brand new condition. I guess I prefer to see my schedule layed out a full month at a time, which is harder to do w/ a handheld (ie to look at my overall open scheduling blocks vs exams coming up, etc). The drug references and such we have on our laptop in clinic, but I know most people really like those as well on their hhs.

    I have a Palm Tungsten E. It's my 5th Palm (if my memory serves me correctly) and it's been excellent to me.

    I'm using the lowly Palm Zire right now, but I plan on upgrading to whatever is new and cool in a year when I hit clinic. The Zire does all I need it to do at the moment...tell me when I have things due and coming up, and it lists the contacts I need for these first two years. When I need Micromedex et al, I'll get the latest and greatest. I think Palm has a better OS, but since I'm using Windows at home, it'd only be that much easier to hotsync with a PocketPC. It all comes down to personal preference in the end.

    Might I also add, I recommend a glock for those of you in urban areas. :D J/P

    I'll pitch my own 2 cents in here: I love my Palm m505, even though it's slower than many others. Wish I had an m515 though, for its brighter screen and a couple more neat features.

    Oddly enough, at this point I use my palmtop primarily to read books before I go to sleep, and I use an actual mini-planner book to schedule my appointments & such. A paper planner is still a lot lighter than a palm, fits nicely into my pocket, and won't be damaged if/when I sit on it. :D

    A quick survey: How much did those toys cost you at the time of your purchase?
