They do have a certain cool factor. They made several models
that differed mainly in what devices were built-in. I recently
got an HP-85 which has the built-in monitor, printer and tape
drive. They had BASIC in ROM and had an expansion port that
could take an expansion ROM cartridge carrier as well as an
RS-232 interface and a GPIB interface.

Now if I can just get that 9815 they've got too. Someone else
has claimed it, but he's never picked it up.
