    I have a Handspring Visor, and love it. I know it's not as advanced as many other models (my mom has a Compaq something that's in color and does everything but the laundry), but it is still so useful for me.
    Because I don't have a keyboard, I don't use it in my lecture classes as my sole means of taking notes. I just can't write as fast on it as I can with a pencil/pen and paper. I usually just use it in the beginning of lecture to jot down new due dates and other important information the prof. gives out. I also have my schedule in it, and have all tests, exams, presentation, and project dates in it. It helps me to manage my time much better.
