Rumor has it that Paul Fitch may have mentioned these words:
>Dude, Brand new PC netbooks are going for around $200.00 these days.
Sorry, but after the "Dude" all I heard in my head was that druggie saying
"Get a Dell!" (Not that I think pot's all that bad, but it made for a more
dramatic headline... ;-)
>one of those and run an emulaor on like VCC or MESS on it. You get around
>300 times the computing power + a warranty!
And (by Model 100 standards) pitiful battery life, an absolutely *dreadful*
keyboard and I don't think you can hook a NADSBox to it (not even via
emulation if the Netbook has an SD-card slot).
Whazza NADSBox? Check out the links at www.club100.org.
>http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualt is a link to a page that has a
>Model 100 emulator. I've never run it.
>My point is, try the software route first, so you know whether it will do

The OP may not have a couple'o'hundred clams to spare, and wants to trade
one of the best desktop computers of the period for the best laptop
computer of the period. Sounds like a reasonable trade to me and ground
shipping would be fairly inexpensive if one is willing to wait.

Unforch, I've neglected my CoCos (my first computers before my T200) more
than my Model 'T' computers due to lack of time... That said, depending on
what the CoCo comes with it sounds like a fair trade to me...

listserver dedicated to just that.

most out of these ol' Model 'T' systems!
