Interesting - I have a IIISi at home that was all of $10 at the local
Uni surplus (it needed a pair of new transfer rollers and separation
pads - about $30 new - and it's been a great printer ever since).

It seems that an in-box upgrade to 4Si would be possible... if I happen
to see an unhappy 4Si at surplus in the future, I'll have to pick it up.

Thanks for the NX-engine tour,
