I was really considering spending $600 including shipping on this
machine which when converted to pounds would still be expensive but I
was looking at selling my 400/500 and the 4000/90 to offset it. Mainly
due to the speed and the (2)scsi cards but I was talked out of it by my
girlfriend and stupid talk of food, living and holidys etc. I know
prices and value have been spoken about many times on this list but I
think it's worth the money when you look at the #50 I paid for the 500
and the borrowing a car + friend for the day. I just wish I had the
money. Good machines like this don't seem to come up over here even at
stupid prices on ebay.
