    It does not take a very advanced pocket PC to run Exbal...I use a HP Ipaq and it works well. You can get an Ipaq from $185 to whatever you want to spend. The big difference is how much memory and how fast the machine is. I would (as usual it seems) buy the best you can afford. I use mine with a bluetooth GPS and it can double as a navigation system too.

    Not trying to hijack this, (if I am just shoot me) but I have been looking on *bay at the Dell X30's. there are two versions one with a 312 processor and one with a 624. Will the 312 get the job done or do I need the 624?
    Or should I just get off my ass and call Nightforce?

    NF makes the program for Palm as well. You can get cheap Palm pilots that work well or as I have done, a Palm cell phone

    Which Pocket PC?

    Pocket PC's for sale on Ebay pocket pc, PDAs Pocket PCs, Cell Phone PDA Accessories items on eBay.com

    The Batteries will go quickly; they are not water tight or shock proof. But they do work very well.

    A PDA Palm OS was originally designed NOT to run third party software packages. In addition, the main intent of the Palm OS was as a Calendar and electronic phone book. Because of this, I only run third party software packages such as NF Ballistic Targeting Software on the Pocket PC's or desktops.

    I use the tds recon and it is a tough price of kit. YouTube - Total Recon-TDS Handheld Computers
    and also use the Kestral 4500 weather meter to support it. You can find the recon on ebay from 300-800 depending on features.
