These things are the apotheosis of a certain "computer as a tool for a task" mindset, and that's what I think makes them so interesting.

@kl That looks like a writer's dream (as long as they don't miss spell check and such). No distractions.

@soda @kl We have several AlphaSmart Neo2 word processors. Relatively modern but distraction free. You can still find them for relatively cheap sometimes.

As I recall, some of them do have spell-check dictionaries.

@kl I'd love one of these as a portable terminal
