True enough. Compared to the legendary, fondly-remembered HP quality, "dregs" probably applies. But if you're looking for a discrete, customizable, currently-manufactured, shirt-pocket device with (halfway decent) buttons, the TI-83+ Silver may be hard to beat:
1.5M Flash ROM,
Zilog assembly language development environment (free),
a Windows emulator/debugger (free) from TI, and
500+ pages of PDF documentation (free).
I'm reexamining just exactly why I'd like to play around at that level in my spare time (rather than right-brain stuff like, say, practice guitar or try Chinese brush calligraphy). But if making a connectible shirt-pocket device "sing my tune" is really what I want to do, I think (as of now) I'd be heading in this direction.
