4700 vs. 2000 _Whats the verdict ?

Hello, i’m new to the block and trying to decide whether to go to the 4700 or the 2000 series. I am currently using a 4150 and sure do want to go to the VGA screen . Is it really a good idea to up the memory with the 4700 series ? Also to throw a curve ball ,anyone on a Ipaq forum wanting to comment on the Dell X50V ? The new VGA screens are really nice on the 4700 and the 50V . Thanks for the help. Wayne Parrish

I gave my wife my 4150, its a great ppc. I looked and listened before the 4700 was available and bought it as soon as HP released it. I have gotten so used to how well everything works now I would not trade it for another model. Daves ipaq forums have all the information one would need to solve any problem that can be. There are many users, and moderators who share all their knowledge to make using the hx4700 as pleasureable as possible. My advice – GET THE 4700

The 4700 is a great device. Got mine the week it came out and have no regrets. I went for the PPC Tech upgrade and it was painless. They really do great work. The extra memory has helped a bit, but I am still waiting for a ROM update that might make Bluetooth easier to launch without requiring a soft reset (a know probelm on several PPC’s).

I did look at the 2000 series when it can out, but the screen and the solid feel of the 4700 just can’t be compared to any other device.

I have the 2750 and am very happy with it. The extra RAM makes a huge difference if you are a heavy user. The size, useless touchpad, and small amount of RAM on the 4700 made that unit less of an option for me. And $200 for the extra RAM seems like a pretty big rip-off if you ask me. If you really want VGA, I suggest looking into the loox 720 which has a normal d-pad, usb host, camera, and 128MB of RAM. You could spend the $200 you save from the ram upgrade on a 4GB CF card!
