    Now days, One has many options to buy gadget. What will you choose if  someone offers you netbook and PDA?

      PDA... !!  a properly equipped PDA can be a reasonable notebook alternative. Depending on the device, you can create and edit Microsoft Office documents; send and receive e-mail with attachments; and do a limited amount of Web browsing. You can even run PowerPoint presentations...
      so.. this for type of uses  I will recommend PDA..!!  although..      a 640x480 screen at a PDA is not small at all. it can provide a huge cantity of information (on the screen) in one moment.!!!!

        You are right.  In fact my PDA supports online fax service that allow users to receive notifications and send online fax document. Besides its very handy.

      Its up to you. I find a PDA more useful for my work but a netbook is more useful for web browsing

    I think they both have merit, but for me, having extra usb ports, audio output/input, ect is important. So, I might lean towards getting a netbook over certain types of PDAs.

    Whatever you do, make sure you find a similar model that you can check out in person. A lot of people don't realize how small they are and you want to make sure the keyboard/screen will work for you.

    I want a PDA so I can use it at work easier but netbooks are really nice too.

    I've got both and the netbook is far more useful, unless you absolutely need something that can fit in your pocket.
