Well, I would, if I could find plenty of them at a sensible price. Of 
course I 'collect' them to use them, I'd fill up the second memory PCB in 
my 9830 with the 32 chips it doesn't have (2K words more of memory), and 
add the control locig. Maybe also make a memory ezpnasion PCB for the 
9820 (it's indentical to the stnaard memory PCB, and contains just 16 
1103s and some decoupling caps IIRC).
