99$ at Target
I just picked up a brand spanking new Neo at Target (or Tar-chez) for only $99! It is my first PDA and I figured I can't go wrong at that price. So far so good -- I like it.

I intended my previous review to be a praise. Apologies.

Good machine, could improve colors
I totally love my Neo. I've installed a lot of programs, entered hundreds of addresses and it's still crying for more!! I really can't compare the speed to other handhelds, but I can't complain of the Neo being sluggish. My only complaint: wish there were more color options, including some non Mac-like. It would be nice to have black and silver too, say for the more serious people, or those who want to look more professional

Absolutely Recommendable
I have been using Deluxe for sometime. It is great. However, Neo comes with the much needed OS 3.5 which support 16 grey scale instead of the 4 grey scale of Deluxe. For the price, Neo is certainly a good buy.

An update to THE legend
I know the Neo isn't much of an upgrade from the Deluxe, but it's only $30 more, so it shouldn't really be. However, it's faster, has new features, and I can trust that it will work with all Springboard modules (I was mad when I heard the Deluxe couldn't handle OmniSky, etc.). It is essentially the Platinum in a better case, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. :)

If my blue Visor Deluxe ever breaks...
...I'd get one of these. Very nice replacement for a very nice tool.

Good update!
Same thing that I said for the Pro, it is a good update to an aging product. Probably even more so than the Plat - Pro and from the pictures I like the colors too.

Excellent Low-end
I plan to buy this instead of a vdx. Its updated software and look (which is important!) makes me want this more than the Vpl.

This is what the VDX should have been
I think Handspring has realized that its best seller the VDX fails in many ways including the old OS 3.1, cheap casing, slow processor, small hardware bottons, etc. I would never buy a VDX neither recommended. I guess this is a great PDA for novice users. This is really the way to go for low budget users like teenagers.

Stop the madness!
I'll never get over people who don't see the benifit of an entry level model. Not every PDA owner needs/want color,music or other bell and gadget. This is a great little unit for the person who just wants a PDA. Get a life -color is grand but, not needed on every unit.
