Hi; this is not strictly covered by the charter of the list, but someone
on it mentioned running across them with some frequency, or at least once.

As it turns out the 850 I paid a fair amount of money for with the
intention of actually using it is a "pre--General-Announcement"
unit---essentially a hardware prototype. This isn't that big of a deal,
but there are some unresolved hardware issues with respect to AIX support
which make the laptop difficult to work with.

Can I ask the person who saw these units at auction to contact me
off-list, please, with regard to acquiring another 850?
