I have one! It came with the ProFile external hard disk, and a box of
expansion cards, too. I rather like the two-click cursor keys, where
you can press harder on the key to make the auto-repeat go faster.
And I like the big holes in the expansion cards to help you to lever
them out with a screwdriver. The whole of the machine chassis is one
big diecasting and acts as a heatsink.
