If the 486 has decent RAM and disk I would trade him level, but only if you
really want the IIGS.

This is not the Good Thing it may sound like, apart from cool appearance.
The Woz sig on the front of the case implies Rev 00 ( = earliest) ROMs and
very limited expandability. AFAIK the released ROM versions were 00, 01,
and 03; 00 could be upgraded to 01 with a chipset, but 03 was a logic board
swap. There never was an 02; 04 existed, but the GS was killed before 04
went into production. Some of the 04 ROM code was written into GS/OS
instead, but beyond this I yield gracefully (I hope) since others here
surely know more than I do.
