Handheld/portable: Sharp PC-E500S

I agree on the PC-1262. I have one with the printer/cassette and it's a great little computer. And will easily slide into a pocket.

On the Handheld, I go for the Sharp PC-1600. The interchangeable ram modules make it a winner in my book. And, of course, I love that its processor is a Z-80. The Z-80 was my first computer, so I have a fondness for it,

A second place on the handheld might be the Sharp PC-1360. I've never had one, but have played with the Android emulator for it. It's pretty impressive. I think the real unit is a little smaller than the PC-1600. But still not really pocketable.

I'm not that familiar with the Sharp PC-E500S. But from what I read on the web, it looks like a worthy contender also.
