HP 95LX / 200LX: how good/bad was typing on its keyboard?

<< < (3/3)


--- Quote from: Kean on January 09, 2023, 01:08:45 am ---I also own some of these palmtops, 100LX & 200LX, plus a few later models running WinCE.  Definitely a quality HP calculator style keypad with good tactile feedback, but only usable for hunt & peck or two thumb style typing.  Still way better than the mushy calculator keypads on the Sharp/Casio/TRS-80 Pocket Computers of the 80's.

ummm, the oldest Casio calculator I have ever tried is the Fx7500.
I like it, but it's shell design and the keyboard is ... weird.

--- Quote from: Kean on January 09, 2023, 01:08:45 am ---I used the 200LX for various things like configuring routers, reading newsgroups, and writing emails, even a little programming, but certainly if I was writing an article my TRS-80 Model 100 or Dulmont Magnum (Kookaburra) were way better options.

that's interesting. Thank you for your feedback.
Can you compare with ... say Psion5' or Psion7' keyboard?

have you ever seen the Casio LISP calculator?
(Casio AI-1000 Pocket Lisp, made in 1989)
People? Writing LIPS programs on that stuff?
