I know I'm not sane, and I don't use a 200LX because I don't have one.
But I certainly do useful work on a 95LX and 100LX. They're ideal for
taking notes as I dismantle soemthing, for keeping a catalogue of
books/components, for use as a terminal emulator, for simple spreadsheets
(and I don't need anything more), etc, etc, etc.

A more modern machine wouldn't give me any beneifts that can think of. It
would take longer to use, it would probably have a much shorter battery
life. No thanks.
