I wrote a book last year on a TRS-80 model 100 portable. There's nothing
else in the 4-pound range that can compare to its excellent keyboard and
long battery life (except, of course, the other machines that share the
same design, such as the NEC PC-8201). Unfortunately, the publisher
required everything to be submitted in Word 6 format using a custom
template (to facilitate conversion to SGML, oddly enough), so I had to do
the final editing on a 486.
