    That 1MB SRAM card will also work in an Amiga A600/A1200 to add 1MB fast ram.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    It will, but would be a bit pointless considering that I already have 128MB of fast ram

    Yeah, but can that run the Gorilla game in QBasic?

    But for an A600 that 1MB fast ram is a lot harder to add to the system, so is quite a sort after expansion card.

    SRAM cards do seem to be rather expensive.

    The downside with this one is that I'm not sure which way up the battery goes.

    I don't think I'll really use it in the 100LX as 1MB is a bit small. I will probably get a compact flash card instead.

    I've just seen a 2MB SRAM card sell for about 40 pounds on ebay. Any idea why they are so expensive?

    I'm going to get some compact flash cards to start running new programmes on the HP 100LX and to transfer things to/from the PC. I might also install Windows 3.0 on it if I can find a copy.

    Here's a photograph of it working: http://stevecoates.net/stuff/hp100lx.jpg

    Meanwhile, if you fancy a 386 machine and have a spare 12 million pounds, you could buy this Compaq which has a gas plasma display: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=270726354443

    What is the deal with that auction? The last comment in the sales description states "You get the warehouse that sits inside." Any ideas?

    I saw that. I'm really not sure.

    Got to love the answer to the question:

    Q: Forgive me however, are you aware that this item is listed for 12.8 million? With kind regards.
    A: I have not seen. Where? You can send me a link? Thanks Danny

    They seem fairly rare, so are sort after. Plus they don't seem to appear often.

    A600 owners are also always on the look out for them to add soem much needed fast ram... especially now the A608 project has failed dismally.
