Well, you seem to like the TDS 210, so I'm curious, which would you
recommend fixing up the 465B (as seems to be the general advice) or get a
210? Is there any classic computer gear I'd need a better scope for?

OK, it's no where near the same class, but they are who I bought my Fluke
from, they appear to have a good selection of what I hope is new test
equipment. I do have one rule about buying stuff at Fry's, I don't buy
anything there if I think I might want to take it back. So far I've not had
any real problems, however, the longer they've had their store up here in
Oregon, the worse their prices seem to be. It's no longer worth it to make
a trip down there based on prices. But for some things they seem to be the
best place to go if you want a good selection, and test equipment looks to
be one of those things.
