It's about the same size as the rest of the Palm III line and the color screen is easy enough to read unless you're outside, it's not much good without the backlight. I've only used one briefly so I can't say how long the battery lasts. With the newer models with better screens out, I'd say the old IIIc is worth $150 at most.

I just bought one off of E-bay for $110, and there are a lot more of them. Check E-bay first... Save a bit of cash. Granted you wont get a warranty unless it is a retailer, but there is TONS of Palm stuff there to mill through.

I haven't received it yet, it should be here Saturday. My wife had a cow about it, she is getting antsy about getting the kitchen redone. I told her tech gadgets are priority :wink: . Darned good thing I insulated the doghouse.
