The Model 100 book: a guide to portable computing. (book reviews) John Anderson.
* The Model 100 Book: A Guide to Portable Computing by Jonathan Erickson and Robert J. Sayre. 310 pp. Osborne/McGraw-Hill, 2600 Tenth St., Berkeley, CA 94710. $14.95. An excellent companion for Lien's Book, this work explains in plain language the types of benefits the Model 100 can provide and backs up its suggestions with solid Basic code. Uses a chatty, informal style to outline use of the Model 100 in the home, office, and classroom. Right on the beam in its section about using the computer on the road, and includes neat programs like a foreign language dictionary and currency conversion. Also includes valuable information on telecommunications potential of the machine.
