I have one and it still works. Battery is very dead, but it can run Sim Tower like a charm!

My naivety led to my Mom getting one of these laptops. At first appearance, it seemed like a great release, but later found out how flawed it was. However, that wasn't until years later when I bought my own from eBay. Oh well, live and learn. From there, it was onto an iBook that served me well, and now a PowerBook G4. How times have changed.

I remember seeing a lot of them on TV (Apple wasnt back in SA yet so we didnt have any of their laptops in stores) and I also remember how cool they looked... to bad they were so crap./ :rolleyes:
