I bought an e125 and thought it was great, then sold it and bought an eg800 because it looks cool (!)(but costs beaucoup bucks unfortunately), then realized it's a great machine with advantages over the e125: 2 internal flash disks (one is about 16MB I think - not sure, the other 1.5 MB), it's rugged and drip-proof. Basically you're not afraid to use it everywhere/anywhere, unlike with the e125.
Then my girlfriend bought an em500 with 16MB additional card. The em500 is great, light, small, but the 16MB RAM shared between programs and storage suck. Movies with pockettv play half as slow as with e125/eg800, and that's a bummer because it's otherwise a great machine.
