i just spent $82 (which seems to be the going rate) for a 4MB VSIMM to make
the onboard SX go. just installed it an hour ago, so far, it's great. it's
fast enough that i don't notice any laggyness and netscape can't steal all my
colors anymore. that's a win to me. :) the only thing i noticed though is
that flipping through the virtual workspaces, it does funkyness for a split-
second, but doesn't cause any real trouble. so far, fantastic.

it <$100 is acceptable to you, don't bother with the ZX, overpriced,
undersupported. get the VSIMM for the SX, and away you go.
