The 3B2/600G and 3B2/1000 were supposed to be the same, just one for government service while the latter is for domestic use.  NO, you can't have my 5620!   I like the funky mouse. :)  BTW, the 1000 can really heat your basement in the winter.  Somebody mentioned the 3B1 but it was similar to  the 7300 (I do not know what the difference was).  I modded mine so it can take larger hard drives.  BTW, I think I have a complete set of software for it.
