TWO BROKEN SERIES 5s

Advantages: Portable computer
Disadvantages: They seem quite prone to breaking.

I've been a fan of Psion for a long time (at least 6 years). Starting off with a Series 3a I used it all the time and downloaded many great applications from the Internet. After a couple of years Psion brought out the Series 5 which I decided to buy. ...

My life in a box
