Great expectations

The articles I have seen on pocket computers running Windows CE are exciting, but they leave me wishing for a different machine. My preferred metaphor is not a scheduler, but rather a loose-leaf binder. I do not want "pocketability"; the keyboard on a pocket device is too small to be useful. I want to be able to add data via the keyboard, which is difficult on such a small device. For true portabililty, I want a battery life of 20 hours or more. And I would love to be able to read CDs on this machine.
