Point Four, Anadex, C-64 questions

At the thrifts they are always priced at $50. or greater. The Adam is three
pieces, and two of the pieces are on the large size. Those doing the
pricing at the thrifts seem to equate size (and number of pieces) with
price, so these systems tend to be priced higher than average. If you want
one and can find one locally for $50 or less, then you should probably grab
it. You can find them advertised on the net for less, but the shipping
costs will kill any savings.

BTW, don't make the mistake of leaving the printer behind if the pieces
happen to be priced separately. The power supply for the computer is in the
printer so you need it to power the system. Also the data tapes are
non-standard and are becoming harder to come by.
