I'll add a few more problem specs than answers but the down side of a lot of devices is lack of backlit screen so working in a dark space can be a problem, and I'd be quite interested to see real battery life reviews. 
 So many devices that can work only last a few hours on battery. Could be age issues but that's what I've accepted as a reason not to collect too many handheld devices. Proprietary batteries and most are dead.
Do you want keyboard or is palm like writing acceptable? On the bright side, despite battery age palms are easy to find and relatively cheap. Most are at goodwill because of obsolescence not because theyre broken.  I find them all the time for $10.
