Another Model II

Just got a call from the freight company...I was bottom-feeding last week, and wound up with another TRS-80 model II, this one with the external disk expansion unit. The box will hold up to 3 extra drives, for a total of 4. I believe this one has 2 drives in it. The expansion box is much harder to find than the machine, so I'll be glad to get this one.

The only gotcha: The machine and expansion box were $50; the shipping was $140. The seller showed shipping via UPS on the auction listing, but refused to ship any way but truck freight. I'm not pleased about that, as I would have passed on the auction had I known. (I was expecting UPS shipping to come in two separate boxes, for about $70.) They're getting negative feedback for that.
