Jon, that is one of the most common "sins" I've seen on EBAY. To most EMAY
sellers of Apple merchandise, virtually everything is classified as "rare."
But folks, you know that is a flat out lie when you see the same
hardware/software listed on EBAY once a week, if not once every 24 hours.
At some point in the future, it would be nice to see EBAY ban the term
"rare" and phrases like "hard to find," even in cases where that may be a
truthful statement.

I myself certainly appreciate all the information you so kindly posted for
us. It's very helpful. I myself have actually pondered some of the items
he sells, such as a PCMCIA Blank Insert to fill one of my empty memory card
slots in a 2100.

Be that as it may, if indeed you really do get a noticeable speed boost
without any sacrifices (e.g., a simple flip of a switch turns off the
booster gets serial functions back), why doesn't every single sensible
Newton user have one of these? Or are there other tradeoffs that were not
mentioned about this accelerator in your recent dialog?
