There are tons of old H/PC models available, and I've got a MobilePro 900 with a big keyboard that could be used to great effect.


The MobilePro units were great units. I had one of the 700 series along with a HP-620 CE unit. The MobilePro had great keyboards and also a fairly large screen. I used mine to do load calc takeoff of drawings using the Excel spreadsheet.

Your question about programming languages led me to research my files for the HP-620LX. Thought I had discarded them some time ago, but found them on a archive disc.

I have the following languages for the HP-620LX which may work on the MoblePro:
(I'm not sure which processor each used)

BasiCE (Both SH3 & MIPS)
SQUEAK CE (Smalltalk) (SH3 only)
XLISP (Probably SH3 only)
POCKETC (Probably SH3 only)

Let me know if you are interested in the files.

You might also try searching for a commercial product called
NS BASIC/CE. Their web page says it is retired:

NS Basic

It's interesting in that you could develop both on the PC and the CE units.
