    I used this one everyday before i discovered the CASIO PLANEO. The IQ is too large to be put in a jacket pocket, but it is not too heavy to be carried along with paper documents in a small case or a bag.
    Functions are quite complete, although i would have loved a money manager. It is possible to redefine any data format, and to personnalise the telephone directory with any needed fields for example. The software and interface design are very good, athough it could be faster.
    The fact that the sensitive screen can be used as well with the stylus as with the finger is a very good point on the machine, this makes the man-machine dialog really pleasant.
    I've added a BASIC card to my unit, but all the specific features of this machine (ie. large display area and sensitive screen) cannot be used by the BASIC.
