I used to have a Psion Series 5. It was a cool little computer and I really liked it, but it eventually bit the dust when the flexy cable that fed signals to the screen gave out and the screen went dead. Evidently that was a common failure mode. By that time the Palm Pilot had taken over so I switched to that, but I never liked the palm as much as the S5.
The Register recently published a long article about the development of the S5, if you're into computers and the stories behind how they're built you'll like this:
