Ditto. I do like mine. Extra TRAM option, 384MB of RAM, 2x4GB disks. It 
gets a little toasty (but it's got the feet for standing it up on its side, 
and I think that helps a little with the heat dissipation - plus it looks a 
lot nicer! :-)

I'm not sure if there was a 'correct' display/keyboard/rodent setup on 
those machines? Mine came with a white keyboard and mouse but granite 
display, and I assume that they should really all be matched.

I still really need to find a purpose for it. Maya would be nice (and if I 
remember right there's evidence that it was originally accessible from that 
machine, but via a long-gone network drive), but I assume that period 
versions are difficult to get hold of.
