I may still have a II, and I definitely still

I still use my 4M/L all the time - Postscript + LocalTalk + IEEE1284.
It's a great little printer.
I have a IIp+ that I got for $2 at a hamfest around 15 years ago... I
have repaired it several times (most recently, visibly bad electrolytics
in the switching PS startup circuit). In fact that's the second time the
power supply has failed - the first time was years ago and I just
replaced the board. Now it's crinkling the bottom of pages... there used
to be a kit to fix that.
I love those old "bricks". Although mine is like my grandfather's axe
(new head and new handle but it's still my grandpa's axe) :)
The trick nowadays is finding toner cartridges that weren't just
refilled, but actually rebuilt (with a new wiper blade).
