Label maker advice

I just finished reading Getting Things Done and am going to take the plunge and get a label maker.

David Allen recommends a Brother model but I'm not sure which. Also, after looking around a bit, I noticed that some of the label makers are VERY expensive.

I'd like something that has is less than about $50 and has a QWERTY keyboard. Any advice?

Thank you!

A bit big to haul...

A bit big to haul around with you I would say

Ironman brings up a good point I have been meaning to bring up around here. Is there a label maker that is a good size for tossing in a backpack? For the sake of brainstorming, let's let price take a back seat for this one.

Personally, I wonder how much I really need one on the move. I go home every day, so I could just use Post-Its or write in pencil on a folder. I suppose if I were going away for a length of time, the BT-65 wouldn't be that big a burden to pack in a carry-on or suitcase. But I digress...
