Agreed. I've tried many of the Mac OS X GTD apps incl. OmniFocus,
Things[1], and The Hit List[3] (my favorite, by far), but I still end
up trying to use Nitch[4] on my Newton most of the time because it's
actually always with me. It's not exactly the way I would've written
it, but it's close enough for my taste.

My MacBook Air is always with me too, but even though it's much faster
for data entry it's just not as convenient when out and about. And, as
you noted, I use it for too many other things so I'm distracted as
soon as I open it up.
