I have a number of them. Problem is, they all have varying capabilities
in their firmware. Some of the old Apple branded ones are close to be
dumb hardware interfaces. On the other extreme are things like the AE
Parallel Pro that could do all sorts of tricks.
Can you find out exactly what the old one was? Another thing to consider
is that there's not much on those boards that can't easily be replaced.
Do you know anyone with a soldering iron and some patience?
