I knew I'd get a response like that!
No ported and polished heads , no dual chrome exhaust, no wooden MOMO steering wheel,
In my case, "blown" means with a CMT massive 32RAM in the Card Reader port, the HP 41 Translator Pac (a must), the HP 71 Math Rom, The 3rd party-made HP 71 AMPI Statistics Rom,
the HP 71 Finance Pac, and of course the IL Module. The environmental overlay is there as well to protect the keyboard from spills, or even dirty air molecules.
Add to this 2 41CX's, One Double Speed 41CV (all three used to periodcally "feed" 41 programs to the 71 via the IL loop) the digital cassette drive, the IL printer and God knows how many user written, 41, BASIC, and FORTH programs.
The unit is pristine,with the leather carrying case and is "polished" with Armor All every month, during the monthly battery change. Yes, I do change the Duracells every month. Yes, I am a true 71B fanatic, have been since I bought it when I was a caclulator salesman at UC Berkeley's bookstore from '84-'86.
Gentelemen, in my case, "blown" means "BLOWN" - start your engines ;)
This has been my day-to-day machine since 1984.I'm having a lot of trouble moving over to the 48GX, although I have been trying!
