There's one on eBay, so I took a look at the specs. From what I've
found the 101 has 128K of RAM and ran CP/M Plus.

I didn't buy it as I've decided to limit my collecting. While I
used to use CP/M quite a bit (and even wrote a 2.2 and Plus BIOS
for the TRS-80 Model 4), I'm only going to collect DEC stuff. I
have an Ampro LB and a TRS-80 Model 4P, and that's the limit of
my CP/M collection. I don't even have the LB or 4P in a position
to run at this point, and after I get the LB software and docs
together I'll post them for sale here. The 4P will stay until I
decide to offload my TRS-80 collection.
