Production

The second model was revamped a little more professional in order to prevent the system from being treated as a toy and being aimed at them. Susumu Takajima from Drillimation Studios stated, "I felt the device was aimed more at kids first, but when the second model came out, those people were starting to get older".

Reception

The TheoryPDA Style has mostly been met with positive reviews. The TheoryPDA Style was a popular laptop used in schools and children during the early-2000s.
