This weekend I was fortunate to have made some very good finds.... all
in one place, all at one time! Anyway, below is a list of the truck-load

I got. Along with many of the items is a question or two, and this is
I am hoping you could please help me out! At the very end is the total
price I paid for everything as one lot. Let me know if you think it was
a good buy or not. Maybe let me know some current values to you
Also let me know if you're interested in any of the items... we may be
able to work out a deal. Basically, all items can be considered

Remember, this is just what I acquired this last weekend. Feel free
to check out the URL on my signature at the bottom to find our complete
inventory (well, minus about 5000 items we are trying to get entered
the computer!!) Oh, and the site is quite new, so many links are broken
yet, and the pages are far from complete!! Give me a few days :-)

Oh, please forgive me, as I know some of you don't enjoy reading these
"weekend additions." But, I figured this was the best place to post my
questions as well.

Thank you very much, and please let me know if you would like any of
this stuff, or have more information on any of it!

The list follows:

*Epson HX-40! On the front of this little laptop, it says "MajicBox."
Has a LCD, adjustable (tilt) display, full keyboard and is model #H401A.

It runs off batteries or a rechargeable battery pack which is still with

the machine. Has a "backup on/off" switch on the underside. Also on the
underside is a bay for programmable ROM chips. Without the chip
it boots to an A> prompt, but I don't know what I can do after that.
anyone have a BASIC chip for it. With the chip inserted, it boots to a
Pharmecy drug order program that is pretty slick. This computer has
for cassette, seriel, RS-232C, and printer. Also has something labeled
cartridge out, but I can't get it to do anything. It looks like it's
converted with something that looks like a audio jack, from the factory
or factory add-on. There is also a small compartment on the right of the

monitor -- unknown use. It looks very similar to the Epson HX-20 --
is known as the first lap-top. Could some of you give me some more
on my particular unit? I could find no information searching the web!
