For the love of all that is sane in the Apple world, don't buy a x100.
7100 and 8100's are terrible to work on, and they're NuBus, and they're
hard to upgrade, and, and and.  Hold out for a 7500 or 8500.  A little
more pricy, but oh so much better to work on.  The 7500 was the first
really cool case I ever saw/had.  You get PCI, easily upgradable CPUs,
faster bus, and did I mention a better case?
