    Before taking a picture of my own device with it's printer extension, i used one from Daniel's very cool collection page. Special features :
    - A complete desktop computer to go!
    - Excellent hardware and expandability

    Weak points :
    - 4 lines screen, but a bit too narrow
    - Too large to fit in a pocket (it's not designed to, though)

    Related machines in my collection :
    Big screen BASIC computers :
    Casio PB-700
    Casio PB-1000
    Sharp PCE-500

    Copyrighted 1983, the CANON XO7 was among the top 5 dream computers at the time. It still has the look and appeal of a dream machine, too!
    Defined as a complete portable computer to those days' standards, the UC actually features the most complete set of connectors and expansion ports for its category. Among it's wide range of peripherals, it would be impossible not to mention the so cool Infrared Communication Interface! This is definitely something i'd love to add to my collection, even if it would be almost useless without another X07 to dialog with!
    Another interesting peripheral was the TV adaptor, allowing access to new, color and larger defined graphic modes displayed on a tv screen.

    The machine is a very cool one, and the large keyboard is among the best ones for such a small device.
