Nice. We used to have a Model III and IV in the "computer lab" at my high 
school, and either a 12 or 16 in the teachers' lounge (it _did_ have a 5MB 
HD, but I never got to play on it), but I was in college when they pitched 
all that stuff out. I don't know if it went in the dumpster, or if a student 
got it, but I _hope_ someone took it home.

I do know they replaced the closet with the III and IV with a 
classroom-sized space *full* of Rainbows. :-P Those probably got pitched, 
too. No idea what they have now, but I'm sure it's a stack of beige boxes 
running something uninspired.
