Pocket Computer

The Pocket Computer is one of the most powerful and versatile computers of its size available anywhere. Its powerful capabilities, as well as its "expandability", make it the ideal personal computer for business, scientific, engineering, or personal use. In spite of its size and power, however, the Pocket Computer can be quite simple to use. In fact, you can determine just how technical a machine you want it to be.
