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?
