 Oi I don't know what you're talking about. Show me
other examples of this if you want to persuade me. I
have 2 of these, actually an SMC-70 and an SMC-70G (I
think that's what it's called). Haven't used either
yet. They do power up, or at least they appear to, but
on the 70G (I think that's what it's called) it had
auto inject floppies (I think so anyway), and they
won't auto inject squat (at least I don't think they
will). 
 I was perusing a BYTE magazine a while back, before
my stash of BYTES got rained on, and I saw a blurb
where Sony was allegedly planning on releasing an 8088
(8086?) coprocessor for the things. Can anyone confirm
or deny if this ever happened? Oi.
 I wish there were at least some Japanese collectors
on this list. Am I the only one to notice it's a part
of the world that we don't hear from on here. And a
particularly important part if you ask me.
