In reply to nunfetishist: I recall someone saying they'd backed their car over an A3000, which apparently survived in working order, although the case was cracked.

Larryfi: favourite machine? the one I'm typing this on (Kinetic RPC+VF2). Its predecessor was an A410/1, which with the benefit of hindsight was a poor bargain compared to an A5000, but I was not savvy enough at the time to realise. Question: is there scope for 'factory reconditioned' s/h RPCs? Given the basic reliability of the RPC this would be an acceptable substitute for a new machine for most purposes surely, and cheaper too presumably?
