RE: What is the best BASIC Pocket Computer
Quote:In my opinion, the term 'pocket computer' was misused by manufacturers and people for so many years. Most machines described by folks here are not truly 'pocket' because you can't actually put them into your shirt pocket, hip pocket or jacket pocket. They're better described as 'portable computers'.

I agree. I bought a Tandy/Radio Shack PC-7 when it was on sale. It's a quirky but very pocketable machine with the BASIC commands and alpha keys on their own membrane flap that folded over the calculator when closed. While it's not a very capable BASIC machine, it's fun to program and a challenge to squeeze useful programs into it's small memory -- but it can be done!
