I'm actually looking for something _larger_ than a palmtop, but
smaller than a notebook computer, which could be a replacement for
The size I'm thinking about is around the level of a Newton or a Poqet
PC (http://bmason.best.vwh.net/PoqetPC/index.shtml) -- roughly
10cm x 20cm x 5cm, give or take.
I'd want to have something that was comfortable for doing stylus input
-- small enough that I could hold it in my (pretty big) hand without a
lot of trouble -- but also something I could sit down and type at
without having to hunch my shoulders and squint a lot.
It doesn't have to fit in a suit pocket -- just be small enough that
it doesn't take up my entire backpack.
And, of course, it has to run Linux.
