yeah, no built in CF card. (you have to buy the expansion pack, which iPaqs are known for.. )

This is pretty high end PPC. you have built in wifi, bluetooth AND a biometric (fingerprint) security..

PDA buyers guide has a review.. (this site is great for reviews.. Lisa does a great job! )

I have the iPAQ 4155. Small for the shirt pocket, very fast performance, built-in WIFI and BT. It will detect any available network and prompt you to connect with the network app. It can open remote files over a network share.

What school stuff in particular? Taking notes? I have a full screen keyboard installed for input to Pocket Word and Pocket Excel. The PIM syncs only to Windows.
