Personaly I prefer the 125x Series, the ancessor of all of the 8Bit
12xx and 13xx Machines. The 13xx are just to big, without any real
advantage, but the big drawback that you could no longer use the
CE-125 docking station (cassette, printer, additional baterie and
serial). Also, IIRC, the display was again smaler (16 instead of
24 characters)

Still, the 126x with the two 2x24 character Display is the most
usefull. Of course, the 1500 is a great machine, but quite to
bulky. Insead I prefered the Panasonic HHC - about the same size
as the 1500, but a straight, plain 6502 computer!

Not so rare.
