I would echo Jackie's comments on the Polaris, it is the best in class out
there I'd say for an all-round note taker. I have the 32-cell and even that

Of the note-takers doing the rounds, I would recommend the Hims Polaris in
either 20 or 32-35ll models. They offer a lot of features such as
Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Email client, Word processor, Internet browser, media
player, and the ability to leave the proprietary suite of applications and
delve into Android, albeit that it is running Lollipop. But it is a nice
machine and, in my humble view, far better than HumanWare's BrailleNote
Touch. I'm not going to start a war over that though, it is only my view,
feel free to get demos of both and see what you think yourself.
As regards payment options, these machines are really expensive, so you may
wish to look at payment plans which HumanWare offers on the Touch, and Sight
and Sound and Computer Room Services offer on the Hims Polaris family. I
have a Polaris Mini which is the 20-35ll version, and I really find it meets
my needs because of portability and features.
Yell if you'd like more info about it.
