    Simple just post the new computer or computer accessory you purchased and post a pic if you can.

    Hello good forum here, very resourceful and helpful. Here is my latest conquest, a Duo 230 with 12MB of Memory and a floppy drive for $16! It had a dead internal HD so I swapped it with a working 80MB for my dead Powerbook 140 (lowwww I know :( ) but it seems just fine suited to my needs. Also the floppy drive was dead so I swapped one from the same 140 (they are the same inside the enclosure :D) Overall it is a joy to have now, since I grew up using a Duo 280c which is in Duo heaven!

    This thing is super light, especially without a battery. As far as a dock goes, years ago I had my 280c in a Duo Dock II. The computer turned off while I was using it. Upon ejecting it never powered up again. I wont risk it again! :(
