Sure if you spent more then the cost of a mac to get all those upgrades when
new. I like my IIgs and have one setup like the one you mentioned without
the Marinetti (TCP/IP stack, will try it). Even the base units with RAM
expansion are decent for old IIgs games, or Apple II games. I just never
wanted the older II's even when offered a II+ locally for free.
