- Just came across this last night while reading Priming the Pump: How
TRS-80 Enthusiasts Helped Spark the PC Revolution by David Welsh and
Theresa Welsh, "In 1999, columnist Pete Waldmeir of the Detroit News
wrote a column saying the News technical support people had insisted
he finally give up his Model 100 (it was not Y2K compliant), which he
was still using. Ed Juge also told us the same year he had
encountered many reported still using Model 100s during the frequent
traveling he was doing for his post-Tandy work."

- Just be careful with the 1.2gb version. Compaq had to replace almost
all the ones they had in Deskpros back in the day. I know as I was
one of the guys doing the replacing. The higher capacity ones may not
have shared the same issue though.
