Fore serious writing / editing Still the best after all these years
3 weeks ago
Summary: I translate movie scripts - that means approx. 120,000 characters to be read, translated and erased in about a week (17,500 characters a day). As I don't like to be chained to a desktop, I need something portable. I tried modern fancy dan Tablets, but for heavy-duty writing/editing? No way.
Summary: Very nice palmtop apparenty I have to enter 1000 characters to write reveiw for this product and satisfy the requirements of the edit. The big brown dog jumped over the lazy fox to chase a deet that was running from a hunter. There that should do it.
Summary: I collect calculators and have been looking for the best deal on a 200Lx on ebay for a while. I got one with all of the docs, box, etc. and it's like new. This little guy is a powerhouse, even by today's standards. What I like is the MASSIVE built in calculator utility that works like a standard calculator but also a programmable. But here's the kicker, I put a 256mb (MB!) CF in a PCMCIA converter and plugged it in, woohoo, now that's a BIG HD for a DOS pc right!
Summary: I bought this Palmtop for use with an instrument in my aircraft. The instrument manufacturer developed a DOS application that runs on the HP200LX that is used to configure the instrument and to retrieve flight logs via the infrared interface. This works great and avoids having to connect wires to perform these functions. I like the small size of the Palmtop since it fits easily in my flight bag. The other thing I like is the small size of data files.
Summary: I got my Palmtop many years ago, and I have used it quite a bit. I used to use mine for everything from e-mail to internet to typing school papers. It is fairly fast for it's size and very good on batteries. The keyboard is very easy to use (so long as you have small fingers!) The problem today is the fact that software is extremely hard to find. Windows XP does not support the computer's docking software and most ISP's do not support Windows CE 1.0 anymore.
