you must be remembering a different DOS than i am -- you seem to be
picturing a world of well-behaved applications that honored API
layering boundaries simply because it was the "right thing" to do.  i
remember no such system.  ;-)

but i'm jesting here -- it may well be that the poqet tools, which is
what i think is being discussed, are well behaved in that regard.

Should I buy a Poqet PC Plus? by Alberto Wong <albertowh@xxxxxxxx>

Dear Poqet users community,

I have been using the HP 200LX palmtop for several years, but always wanted to
get a real DOS-compatible palmtop with touch-type keyboard and large screen
(for working with DOS apps). The 200LX is a marvellous computer, but
unfortunately it does not meet that important features I'd like to see in any
palmtop.
About three year ago, I read about the Poqet but could not get one. In last
days, while searching for old computers in eBay, I found some Poqet PC Plus.
Since this model is better than the Classic Poqet, it has appealed me and I am
seriously considering to buy one in eBay or in Cadigital. That is why I have
subscribed to your mailing list: I want to learn more about the little Poqet,
so that I can take the right decision. Should I buy the Poqet PC Plus? Please,
help me!! Among my worries is: How can I print to a parallel printer? Is there
perhaps any parallel printer cable that can be inserted in PC Card slot?
I'll be grateful for any help or advice you can give me!!

Alberto

The cheap and easy solution is to set your CMOS to try to boot from the A:
(floppy) drive before trying yo boot from C: (hard) drive. Then boot from 
a DOS diskette in A:. Likely you can even have your POQET software on the 
same boot disk. You can then access the data files from WINDOZE  or DOS on 
subsequent reboots.

hi alberto,
I have been a LX user for more than 2 years now.
I had a Poqet clasic and a plus for some time.
The great things with a plus is the large backlight screen and the large and good keyboard.
Also, it's great to have 2 pcmcia slots.
great also, the printer port (but only if you have the adaptor). same with the serial port.

Now, the raison I like the 200LX are all the free and powerfull program you can find for it.
also the size(I can cary it every where).
AND AND the AUTONOMIE!!!!!!
The autonomie of the Plus is only 2hours!!!!!
regards
Al

Non-Poqet content: Have you looked at Toshiba Libretto? It has been
discontinued, but some dealers still have several left. It's bit larger
and heavier than Poqet Classic which I got, but it's also more useful in
terms of things it can run. And the active matrix color LCD is, although
very small, quite wonderful. As for touch-typing, it depends on the size
of your fingers.
