Great Product that I use everyday at work.

 

This keyboard is the major contributing factor for why I continue to purchase Palm's Tungsten PDAs. First I bought the T and recently upgraded to the T3. The keyboard works great. I have checked out Palm's new slim line version keyboard, but the whole ke

Good ol' Palm portable Keyboard. I'm so glad that PalmOne has not run out of these. Every other keyboard out there has one issue or another. Outside of the "flat surface" issue, this is the most complete trouble free keyboard you can buy for your palm bra

Perfect fit

 

Its got a nice green interior (sort of a pea green).

Fit my new Acer 5542G perfectly (15.6" widescreen). Has a few pockets for accessories and a nice roomy area for books, etc. which is seperated from the notebook pocket. Seems well padded and very comfortable. Looks nicer than the photo, IMHO

Hmm.. maybe a few more pockets for cords and accessories? Mine fit fine though. It's a bag, not much more to add to it
