RE: What is the best BASIC Pocket Computer
I would go with the CASIO PB-1000.

Up to 40k memory.
4 lines x 32 characters
Flexible variable names, as long as you want
Sub routine supported
User defined function


Touch screen :-)

Ability to program the unit in assembler. Everything is included in the computer, editor and assembler; no need to load or plug an external package. Very easy. The documentation is also very good.

Can be used with different interfaces giving RS-232 and Centronic connectivity and even floppy disk access.

It is not an HP pocket computer, but it still nevertheless a nice machine!

Want to ask you all to give your opinion for the best (vintage) BASIC pocket Computers, taking into account the following aspects:

1. Amount of basic and upgradable memory.
2. Number of lines in display.
3. Flexible variable names (supporting two or more alpha characters).
4. Support for SUB routines
5. Support for separate user-defined function.

I am listening!
