Take a look at, but depending on your
definition of cheap, you may be in for a shock, these are NOT cheap !!
Also, the DOS (and a handful of icons/tabbed screens) interface seems
very dated now, while for example (!) the Newton, which is not so far
time-wise, remains a top value on ergonomy and ease of use.
I keep my 200LX boxed permanently for that reason.

Good luck.
