Link to archive: Valentin's review of various sharp pocket computers?



#8

Looking for the thread where Valentin discussed various specialized sharp models, such as the one with built-in financial functions, matrix functions, etc. I think these were numbered up in the PC-14-- something range.

I recall the thread where he discussed them and suggested that HP collectors might want to get these.

Can't find it now. :-)

Any help?

Hi, Gene:

    Apart from mentioning them in various S&SMC and HP-15C Mini-challenges, and assorted postings answering some questions about them, these are the latest threads where I've posted anything about SHARP models:

    I don't have actual links for them but these references can probably be used to locate the actual threads in the archives (or somewhere else).

    Also, in case noone can pinpoint the exact thread, I'll look tonight (six hours from this post) at home to try and locate it for you.

    Thanks for your interest and

Best regards from V.

Thanks, Valentin. Haven't found the exact thread yet.

I seem to recall it was where you gave suggestions about Special Sharps that HP collectors might pick up. I know it mentioned the basic language Sharp w/built in financial functions (just picked one of those up) and the 1475 w/its machine code matrix functions and others.

Just like to bookmark it so I can know which machines to look out for. ;-)

Other Sharp models which are often overlooked are any IQ7xxx, IQ8xxx or IQ9xxx organizer with the additional Basic card.

IMHO the best Sharp pocket computer (apart from I/O) is the IQ8400 with the IQ871 card. With this combination you get :

- 128K Ram (not expandable, but sufficient !)

- a large 8x40 graphical screen, you can switch to 4x30 for old eyes

- Sharp's latest version of Basic with files and 20 digit precision, comptible with the PCE-500

- very fast hardware

- connection to a PC is possible

- a full friendly organizer comes with it, free !

- full keyboard with extended character set

And the full RAM can be swapped with another card and is battery backed.

The IQ871 is compatible with IQ7xxx and IQ9xxxx models, but on these the screen is limited to 8x20, a painful limitation.
