Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: More Classic Computer Ads
- Hey Evan...Nice to hear from you. You got a great memory! That VCF
was fantastic as I scored
an original Xerox Alto user manual there. Now if I could find a Xerox
Alto to go with it (or any of the Xerox d-machines)
I'm overdue to get down to NJ....hopefully you can talk me into
dragging my Apple Lisa-1 down there.
If you come up to boston, we'll take the 'Pretty woman' Esprit out for a spin.
Any folks from Mass on the list?

- 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.
