It's no problem operating it with one hand. It's a good meter. No extra features besides the averaging function. A little plasticky perhaps.
The only thing I'm missing is the ability to let the shutter speeds step in 1/10 stops instead of the aperture, but with an older Nikon where he shutter only has full stops that's not a problem.
I have no experience with the spot attachment though, although I think ten degrees sound a bit much to be really usable.
In that price range I'd also consider the Gossen Digisix (or Digiflash if you need flash metering). The Minolta has much better user interface but the Gossen is really small and easy to carry everywhere. It doesn't have spot metering either.
