I think the TT030 should just go? The other easy thing about the TT030 is 
that it has a standard VGA connector. There is a special adapter that 
someone makes that allows it to do a much higher resoution ?ECL? output 
that is needed for running Unix on it. But for normal Atari stuff a VGA 
montior should do.

On mine, I ended up using a SD2SCSI as the original drive sounded like a 
chop saw. I don't remember a battery inside but we should probably check 
on that and caps.

Haven't done much with mine. I last used it with UNIX for the last VCF 
East, would like to setup a SD card with software that can take advantage 
of it's graphics and sound stuff.
