It is quite rare to find a dedicated PDA without phone functionality today, but it looks like HP is now shipping their iPAQ 210 Enterprise Handheld. This is quite a powerful PDA with a 624MHz processor, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, integrated Compact Flash and integrated Secure Digital slots, 4 inch VGA (480x640 pixels) display, integrated WiFi and integrated Bluetooth radios. Actually, the Dell Axim X51v I have from a couple years ago has just about the same specs, the display is 3.7 inches instead of 4 inches. However, you can no longer find the Axim X51v or HP hx4700 so this new HP is really your only choice for a high-end stand alone PDA.

Dell's flagship performance-orientated desktop replacement notebook makes full use of its Dothan Pentium M processor and ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 graphics.
Dell Computer updated its two low-priced, consumer-oriented desktop PC product lines this week with faster processors. Dell's new Dimension 2200, starting at about $709, offers a faster 1.2GHz Celeron processor from Intel. The most basic configuration of the new PC also offers 128MB of RAM, a CD-ROM drive and a 15-inch monitor coupled with Microsoft's Windows XP operating system, according to Dell's Web site. The addition of a 17-inch monitor and CD-Rewritable drive boosts the price by $90 to $799. Bumping the machine to 256MB of RAM and a 40GB hard drive adds another $80. Buyers can also add longer warranties of up to three years, and Microsoft's Office application suite. Dell also updated its SmartStep desktop. The prebuilt machine, which cannot be custom-configured by Dell buyers, was designed to offer a rock-bottom price of $599. Keeping a set configuration helps lower the cost of the machine, Dell has said. Dell is holding the line on that price, but has raised the speed of the Celeron chip in the new SmartStep 150D to 1.2GHz. The original SmartStep 100D, introduced last October, came with a 1GHz chip. The desktop also offers 128MB of RAM, a 20GB hard drive and a CD-ROM drive. --John G. Spooner, Special to ZDNet News
