Yay for Franken Macs!

Two whole full-length NuBus slots underneath unless you need one for
better video.  NuBus USB card for the wireless adaptor, or hacking a
slot in the side for a PCMCIA USB adaptor?  (Assuming he's putting a
Duo in the dock.)

Pretty cool.  Docks are a cheap.  The biggest problem with Duos is
finding RAM and working batteries (though it's fairly straightforward
to rebuild them).
