I'll second the Zaurus (I have s SL-C3100, which is more expensive but
quite a bit more powerful). The Cx000 series have higher resolution
screens and the keyboards are far better than the one on the
5500. There's no built-in WiFi, but decent support for CF or USB WiFI
It makes a great mini-laptop, though I found the PIM apps less than
perfect for PDA use. I found OpenZaurus well supported.
