    One thing I don't miss about the Visor is the high cost of memory plugin modules. I just picked up a 128MB Lexar Memory Stick for my Clie N760C at CompUSA nfor $59.99. I'm gonna love this for storing tons of MP3's and backing up my files.

    I believe Handspring charges $59.99 for a 16MB Springboard Memory pack. That's outarageous, but the sad result of the proprietary technology of a 'small' company. The Memory Stick is Sony's propietary format, but Sony is a huge company with dozens of electronic products using the Memory Stick.

    Is there an advantage the Springboard memory pack has over the Memory Sstick? I think it comes with BackupBuddy right? Great program which is superior to Sony's backup app. I would actually prefer a CF slot on my Clie, but the Memory Stick is acceptable.

    The sale ended on Saturday though

    Actually- almost ALL Lexar 128 Mb media was on sale last week (and may be this week as well as far as I know!) for $59.99

    AND you can get a Lexar card reader for free with the purchase! (Well, it costs $19.99, but you get a $20 rebate!)

    Yes, I knew about the reader but it didn't makes since because my Clie is essentially a 'reader' connected to my PC. I haven't had too much confidence in CompUSA rebates because they tend not to come back!!

    I tried to get the sales associate to give me a CF reader instead but he balked. Same price but he wouldn't do it.

    Not to dissuade you, but just to let you know: it took Lexar 4 months to get me my rebate back. (It just arrived yesterday.)

    I don't have a problem with that, but they said originally 8-10 weeks. Just wanted to let you know that it may run longer.

    It's all about how you spend the money.

    Do you happen to know if this sale is still going on (in NYC if it makes a difference)? ComUSA's web site quotes $79.99 right now. I had a look at the new Clie yesterday. I'm trying to restrain myself, but sooner or later I'm going to break down, so I might as well prepare myself with accessories if the price is right .

    Frys had an ad for 128mb Sony ones for $49 and BestBuy price matched it for me! I was very happy.

    I have had a lot of experience with CompUSA's rebates- and they DO take forever... but $19.99 is still a great price for the reader, and the rebates DO usually come in eventually!

    I know the MS Import function does the same thing, but I love the card reader because it lets me transport large files (too big to e-mail) from computer to computer. (I install the drivers on my home, laptop, work, wife's work, etc. computers so I can use the reader like a transportable drive.) I can also use it to upload files and data at a computer that I do not have a sync cradle on.

    Sadly I didn't read this thread until the price had returned to $79.99. Has anyone seen it for less in a retail store? I looked up on ZDNet and found it for $59.99 with a (gulp!) $7 shipping charge at buy.com. For an item that weighs so little, to charge $7 is highway robbery.

    Since your Dad is getting the T615, have you considered buying two at one time? Buy.com is offering free shipping on orders over $99.00 and under 20 Pounds.

    Even if you find it retail for $59.99, you still have to pay tax. So, that really only makes shipping around $3.00 - $4.00.
