The 200LX was the third generation of the LX series which began with the 95LX. The 200LX offered the same features as the 100LX with additional software that included Pocket Quicken. The 200LX came in two versions: the F1060A included 1MB RAM and was priced at $549; the F1061A included 2MB RAM and was priced at $699. HP offered a 4MB version of the 200LX later in its life.

Be sure to read about the history of Portable Navigator. This marine navigation system was written by former HP employee Graham Collins and ran on HP palmtops (and earlier machines).

As of 2014, there is still an active commercial market for 95/100/200LX palmtops (products, accessories and repairs). The worldwide leader in the market is Thaddeus Computing.

Collector's Notes:

AS of 2013, the 95LX, 100LX and 200LX are all still very common and still very reliable. It is very handy that these palmtops can be run from regular AA batteries. Over 95 percent of the units we see are in fully functioning condition.
