Can she press a button? If so, she's good to go.

The reason I didn't go with the TX is because the 128 MB wasn't going to cut it for music so I knew I would have to spend another $50 on top of that for memory.
That's not what the on board memory is for. The more memory you have on board, the more applications it will hold. Yes, you can install them on the card, but it's so much easier to throw it onto internal memory.

Might I suggest the following software to go with it?

1. Pocket Quicken. Fan-damn-tastic software for household finances. I've been using it for years and don't keep a paper record anymore because of its simplicity. $40 at PalmGear.

2. The standard launcher is good, but there is so much more out there that's better and more efficient. I use SilverScreen and absolutely love it. $20 at PalmGear.

3. TCPMP Media Player. Freeware media player with support for Divx, Xvid, MP4 and a ton of other codecs.

Decide what would we better the Palm OS or the Windows competitor. If she only needs it for the basics the Tungsten will be great. If she needs it to be a pocket computer than you'll need to look into what software it needs and converting between the 2 unless you get something that runs windows. Documents 2 Go converts back and forth easily and is basically Office for the Palm.
