Funny I was just thinking about posting a message on this dilemma. The
sorry fact is that the market for parts far exceeds the market for systems
on almost EVERY cheap heavy thing that exists. Either we bite the bullet
and part some working systems out, or TWO computers go in the dumpster (the
working system and the one needing the part).

I know many people on the list don't like capitalism being practiced on
there hobby, but very frequently the dollar choice is also the "best"
