After having many laptops and being distracted enough that I still was relatively near the starting point of the novel I have been wanting to write- I decided to change tactics. I participate in NaNoWriMo every year, and every year there are several people touting the wonderfulness of the Aphasmarts. So I decided to get one. I was actually looking for the Alphasmart 3000, but ended up getting the Alphasmart Dana. That turns out to be the better choice for me. And if you are thinking about getting an Alphasmart- I’m going to give you the features – well, the features that I think are necessary in order to make an informed decision on which one you should get.
