The Sharp Pocket Computer PC-1360 is a small computer manufatured in 1987. It superceeded the PC-1350 that was built in 1984. The 1360 has an 8-bit CPU that runs at a whooping 768kHz. It came with 8KB of RAM and could be upgraded to 64KB. It had a built in LCD display that ran at a resolution of 150x32 pixels. It had a built in BASIC interpreter. My love for this machine began when my father took me to the computer store while shopping for a PC-1403, and I saw this huge screened pocket computer looking back up at me. At the time I only knew how to program in BASIC. Today, I'm learning assembly, and the 1360 is the machine I'm learning it on.
I have found that learning assembly on the PC-1360's SC61860 CPU is easier then the Intel and 6809 CPUs. So it's a great stepping stone to move onto other CPUs once you get the hang of assembly.

This has been my test bed for learning assembly. Rather then loading the program onto the PC-1360, I load it into the emulator and can debug using that.
