Err... I wasn't talking about Level I/II Basic,
but rather if it is a L1 M1, or L2 M1, read,
the revised version. The most notable difference
is the keyboard.

Of course, most L1M1s with L1 Basic where later
upgraded to have L2 Basic.

Still the fact is that someone intended to spend
an awfull high amount of money on a L2M1.
