  • Looking for a successor for the HP Palmtop? Have a look at the devices Michael Mrozek offers in his Dragonbox Shop (browse for UMPCs and for the Pandora and Pyra Linux handhelds!) I can personally recommend the Onemix Windows mini notebooks (3rd generation currently). But there are other good options. Once the Pyra is available, that may be a very interesting alternative as well (Linux). The Pyra is developed by Michael Mrozek and his international team of specialists. 

  • If you need repairs, upgrades and spare parts: Please contact Michel Bel (Netherlands, Europe) or Thaddeus Computing (USA).

  • If you need software for your Palmtop, browse the S.U.P.E.R. palmtop software archive. In case the main link on the left does not work, try this mirror: http://mizj.com/

My service:

HP Palmtop Button

hermocom was one of the last few supporters worldwide for the MS-DOS-based Palmtop PCs made in the 1990s by Hewlett Packard.

These are the HP Palmtop PC models 95LX, 100LX, 200LX, 1000CX and the OmniGo 700LX.
I can mainly help with the 100LX, 200LX and 1000CX models. The other ones you can ask me about, too, but I am not too experienced with them. 

Since my interests have moved on to new topics (e.g. photography and 360° photography / virtual tours), I don't have the time anymore to care much about he HP Palmtops. Also, I don't really have a good use for them anymore. But I still appreciate them as probably the best ultramobile computers, that have been made by now. :) I still have a few of them here for nostalgic reasons, and I even use them occasionally.


Until 2014 I also offered:

  • Repair service (worldwide) 
  • RAM upgrades 
  • Speed upgrades 
  • Backlight upgrade kit
  • Spare parts, accessories and special offers

Dear fellow Palmtopper!

For a donation in €:

Your donation, even if it's just a single USD, will help me to:

  • finance the server that hosts the site
  • justify time I spend with maintaining the site and do not spend with earning money otherwise (wife is watching! ;D)
  • just continue to be motivated :)

Since my company "hermocom" does not exist for many years anymore, I am now spending my spare time and private money for all of this. Thank you very much! 🙂

Yours truly,
Daniel Hertrich
