It really depends on what you want it for. I made the same evaluation
recently (Zaurus vs laptop) and decided that the Zaurus was too limited
for my needs. Specifically me needs were/are:
- A portable news server (Ok, I love Usenet alright :) The plan being to
sit on the train and read some news. The Zaurus didn't have enough
- Playing Crossfire (on the train again mayhaps? :)
- General Linux admin/dev stuff
- Network diagnostics.
The Zaurus might have achieved some of these but not enough of them and
not well enough.
Just my 2.2c worth.
