Canada only) are perfect writing

companions.  These machine are full computers with similar capabilities to the Tandy 102

and NEC 8300.  If you are still in school and are tired to having to hog the back row of the

classroom to plug in your notebook, pick up a Tandy WP2 and you can run 20 hours

continuous on just 4 AA batteries.

DR-2430 battery. You can also download file transfer and conversion software for these
