Yes, 75lbs is about what I am guessing once the box and packing materials is
added in. I assume you had it shipped to your business address, so Fedex
wouldn't beef about the weight.

It is an APC I (APC-H01 Basic Monochrome APC) the big honkin' unibody with the
dual 8" floppies. I also have a very clean APC III which I am loathe to part
with, but could make it available for a really good offer ;-) I am trying to
sell alot of what I currently have and just concentrate on a small subset of
systems. The old time/space argument.
