The Palm m100 is a Palm OS based personal digital assistant. It was intended to be a lower-cost entry-level PDAs. Unlike other Palm computers, which had rechargeable batteries, they were designed to run on standard dry cell batteries. A small backup battery preserved the system memory while the user changed the main batteries. When not in use the screen is protected by a hinged cover.

The m100 is powered by the Motorola EZ Dragonball processor operating at 16MHz, and it has 2 Megabytes of RAM. It was released in August 2000.
