The PRM-85 is described here:

Its creator frequents the HPSeries80 group, and appears to intermittently decide to make batches of the boards when enough interest accumulates:

He announced a run back in June. I expressed interest at the time, and just got mine within the last week. So, plan to be patient if you want one. :) I paid $120 + shipping. I haven't had a chance to plug it in yet. My HP-85 is presently in pieces as I work on its tape drive. It looks like a really neat option, particularly for a new entrant to the Series 80 world who would otherwise need to spend quite a bit of time and money accumulating desired original ROMs, somebody who wants to enhance an A model to do B model things like using SS-80 protocol drives, or somebody who wants to develop their own ROMs.
