A: You were real lucky to get one for $10.
B: re "idiot," I bought a Pofo with a cool leather case, two RAM cards and
full docs from a Stanford student for $75, two years ago, and recognized it
then as a bargain. Today in the Valley a working Portfolio, with case and
set of goodies, is $150 to $200. (For most of its life the bare machine
sold for $295 new.)
