On the smaller end of the scale, I've got a HP Omnigo 700LX (i.e. 200LX with
a built in Nokia DataCard) and a Psion Organiser II. Both fairly nice
machines, but the Org2 is a power-hungry little beasty...

I think it's a pretty nasty machine too - just picked it off the top of my
head as an example :)
Of course, feel free to replace "ZX81" in that sentence with "PERQ". The
meaning still ends up the same :)

Hmm, you mean along the lines of:

.. which gives the answer "3". (I *think* that's FORTH, not sure though). I
might actually have a go at designing an RPN calculator at some point. Might
make a fun project, especially seeing as I just got my PIC microcontroller
programmer running again...
