It's not really worth it if all you're using it for is ballistics. The Axim runs Excel, has a calendar, synchs with your pc, and does a bunch of things (that most smart phones do now) so it's definitely the best bang for the buck. The funny thing is, mine sat on top of my big food dehydrator for years. I almost gave it away a bunch of times but with all of the smart phone and ipod stuff that's out there nobody wanted it. Then I discovered ballistics programs for the PDA so I dusted it off, replaced the battery with a big one that lasts forever, and I use it all the time
