Nitpicks...(I know none of these apply to the machine in question, but...)

1) The -I and -II might have come out at the same time and differ in, 
say, memory size only

2) The -I might not have been a palmtop computer. it might have been a 
desktop or something.

Anyway,  I've learnt over the years to not trust anything an E-bay seller 
says in a description, other than the model number (most of the time!). 
Certainly not things like 'rare', 'first', etc. :-)

I see. So it's OK to misrepreset products now, is it?
