I'm not such an equipment collector, instead I search for technology and information. Mostly because technology and information, once disclosed, remain with the keepr and may spread around everywhere without "fading", instead it is reinforced.
Anyway, I thik the most recently come-to-be-rare piece of technology is the Xpander. It is very well known and documented, also those who posess one of it will keep them with another perspective.
I compare all of them, HP95C, TI88, Xpander and now the NS7100 with each other, no way to try to reason about these "guys" as regular equipments that were never released. At the moment they become "Unobtainium or Neverexistedium", they go to another level of existence...(?)
I like more reading about them than reasoning about them. They are already history, and at this point, history cannot be changed. Also, I'd like to thanks to each one of those brave keepers who disclosed these dazzling, rare pieces of information I like so much to keep in mind.
My thoughts... Oh, I have 1¢ in my pocket!
