Off Ebay, back in March... I had been looking for one for quite some time,
and one day I got a little adventurous... searching for tangent things
like Tadpole, etc. and found an auction for one where the seller had
accidentally misspelled it as "Sparqbook" :) needless to say there were
only 1 or 2 other bidders, and I was going crazy during the last minutes
of that auction (and jumping for joy when I saw the results). Lucky, very
lucky :) since then I've probably sunk a couple more hundred into it for
more RAM, floppy, and accessories... but I love this machine... definitely
a nice piece of equipment.
