Digitise your documents, buy a portable scanner

I am what you might call an 'Organisation Freak'. I need all my papers to be properly filed, labelled and easily accessible, with cross-references and whatnot.

My friends wonder how I manage all this information. There are great document management solutions such as Evernote and Keepnote that help me store documents electronically and tag and cross-reference them. The catch is in getting all of one's paperwork digitised before these applications can step in and wave their magic wands.

The other day I had a bunch of 20 A4 sheets with notes on both sides that I needed to get on to my computer. Taking advantage of the situation I decided to do a recce of the portable scanner market.

Here are the results, split into what is available in the domestic market, and what you can obtain if you can source stuff from abroad.
