     Yes, a Palm and a Palm Pilot are one and the same. The Pilot Pen Company sued 
    the original Palm company claiming trademark dilution since Pilot could make 
    a stylus for the Palm, which would then be a "Pilot Pilot" instead of a "Palm 
    Pilot" etcetera. So "Palm Pilot" refers to an original model, the later ones 
    are all "Palm"s of various models and prices. There's nothing wrong with a 
    Palm IIIxe or other older model, ued or refurbed, although I strongly suggest 
    getting 8MB of memory (the IIIxe not the older III, etc.) if you want to run 
    nav applications and more toys.
     The newest latest ones add color and memory cards, and quickly ramp up from 
    $100 (older used/refurbed) to $500 (high end new color, but nice).
     Web site? www.palm.com and the links from there. Any office supply store or 
    computer store should have them live to look at, being the salesman some 
    coffee and a doughnut in the slow morning hours and they'll spend the day 
    with you.
     Oh yes, the Palms all have infrared built in. They can beam anything back and 
    forth to each other, and make great universal learning remote controls as
