ISTR that there was also a 100 ?
The 101 was BIG. It was HEAVY. Substantially bigger and heavier than
Laserjet -. It was fast. It was LOUD!
But, it would fit into the back of a Civic hatchback.
I had one sitting around for years. I took it to some of the John Craig
Computer Swaps in San Jose, and siome of the "Northwest" ones in San
Mateo. I could not sell it. Not for $100; not for $50; not for $20
I gave it to City College Of San Francisco in 1983? when I was doing some
part-time teaching there. They stated a value of $1200! so I got a LOT
more off of my taxes than I could have gotten from a sale.
IF they have stopped using it by now, then it was NOT because it was worn
