Funny you should mention that,  as I have one of those too,  though I'm not 
sure of the model number.  Also serial interface.  And there's a daisywheel 
printer with it,  as well.  I've not had anybody express *any* interest in 
either of these for some years now.  Both are probably going to be scrapped 
out,  at some point in time,  for whatever I can get out of them,  unless I 
hear of someone interested before that happens...
