I'm pretty sure there's none. The 1250, 1250A and 1251 seem to be nearly identical. Matter of fact, all SHARP models have either the identical BASIC dialect or else upwards compatible, with very few, obvious exceptions and extensions (4- or 2-line display versus 1-line display, etc).

Certainly. The best model of this series is the SHARP PC-1262 (see pic at bottom). Same form factor, dimensions and weight, but 10 Kb RAM (vs. 4 Kb), 40 Kb ROM (vs. 24 Kb) and 2-line display (vs. 1-line). An amazingly capable and small machine (HP-15C size approx.). And fast, too !
