1-2-3 Documentation for 200LX Lacking

1-2-3 Documentation for 200LX Lacking

The Palmtop is a first class helper. But I can't figure out why HP doesn't provide adequate documentation for the built-in Lotus 1-2-3 application. The program is so old that you can't find decent documentation for it. If you'd been with me the past few evenings as I shopped around for 1-2-3 (Ver.2.4) reading material, you'd be inclined to think the same way. HP must feel most users already know 1-2-3, so they don't need to bother including any documentation. How does that help 9-out-of-10 of us who know exactly zero about it?

If they want to claim an aged version of 1-2-3 as one of the 200LXs major selling points, the least they can do is supply some documentation to help cushion the fall a little. The more I think about it, the more the whole thing irks me. And no, when I bought the 200LX I had no interest whatsoever in 1-2-3. I had no use for it but I do now.

[The lack of 1-2-3 documentation with the HP Palmtop has annoyed other Palmtop users. Fortunately, there are still some good 1-2-3 release 2.x references available.

In addition, Thaddeus Computing has just acquired a large number of Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.4 MICROREF Quick Reference Guides (and DOS 5.0 Quick Reference Guides). We are selling them for $14.95 each ($25 for both 1-2-3 and DOS Guides). For ordering information, call Thaddeus Computing--Rich.]
