No SCSI, no slots, no monitor, expansion limited to sticking things
on parport, ethernet, or modem, or replacing the existing drive.
The Corel Linux Computer. ;-)

I have not decided between the Corel Linux Computer or an Acorn
Computer.
Anyone know of an Acorn Computer Dealer in the USA?

I do not know if you have any children Tim, but from experience of
moving
two daughters into college and back home again over the past several
years,
even though they are experienced users, a Corel Linux Computer, or
IMac looks nice. ;-) Sure would beat hauling a midtower, monitor,
keyboard,
mouse, external peripherals, etc. Already lost one monitor to a drop
test. ;-)

The IMac is a luggable (?), while the Corel Linux COmputer fits in a
back pack.
