Please help, your opinion is appreciated.

I have a 515 that just died, battery failure. It is used for :

SOAP notes. I have a SOAP program, (that is medical notes for
patients). I tap responses as well as write in unique findings.

Phone book

seminar notes. I have an attatched keyboard that I sometimes use.

Franklin planner: appointments

Since I have to load all of my apps again, everything is up in the

Thanks in advance,

as they will do all that the Es will do and more.
