Booting the memory hog

I'm going to an electronics store to play with the handheld PDA's, or personal digital assistants.  Sounds pretentious to me.  And what's wrong with personal analog assistants?  Anyway, should I end up gainfully employed, it might be the perfect thing for taking notes while I'm at work.  The Palm m125 is looking like the front runner, but I want to go play with the Sony Clié and whatever Handspring have to offer.  I'm not  interested in Compaq's iPaq, or the HP Journada, both use expensive colour screens and run Windows CE, which is probably as stable as any other MS desktop OS, (ie not at all), and a memory hog to boot.

That's an odd phrase, to boot.  Found some info about it.  Seems to be derived from Old English.
