Just Ordered an SJ-33 from Amazon for $164
I just couldn't take it anymore. I found that Amazon had the SJ-33 for $194.00, with free shipping. Plus they are giving a $30 credit to anyone who opens an Amazon Credit Card account. So I bit the bullet and ordered one. My total with the discount is $164.
I have 6 months to pay off the balance of the Amazon account and I will be charged no interest.. I'll do that in a month.
I am on a budget and this looked like the best fit. My last Clie, the N760C, took two years of abuse at the gym 5 days a week, and on the road alot. But then it died a mysterious death after being wedged in my car's glove compartment on a drive to Florida. Because the the N760 had no hard cover, and the flimsy flap had long broken off, the pressure, dust, and heat finally overcame it.
So I hope the SJ-33's hard cover offers better protection. I like the NX series, but my budget is not ready for that yet. While I like the keyboard of the NX series, the MP3 playback was the biggest reason I needed to buy.
I figured I'd be able to get by with a regular MP3 player, but have you guys seen the prices of those? Most good one's run in the range of $130-$230. I figured I'd just drop that on a new Clie, which can do much more. Anyhow, I am now out of the N_Series Club, and into the SJ crowd.
