Yesterday I picked up my TAM at the post office, and it is a great machine!
It came with a Sonnet Crescendo G3 upgrade and some additional adapters (USB, Ethernet, Firewire & modems) and some spare parts + software.

It arrived in a flawless condition, and works perfectly. The sound is very nice too.

Lucky! :O

Hell of a price, but the TAM is a really unique and interesting machine - not to mention it's permanent rarity due to the limited number made.

It's not so bad. No more than a standard laptop or a game console. I figured the TAM was worth it, as it will not get easier to get one if I keep waiting.

If you think of it in those terms, yes, but compare it to other vintage machines and it begins to become far more expensive.

That is also true. Still, it's a great machine :-)

I always like the TAM an interesting design. I wouldn't mind getting one myself tho they can be a bit expensive around here.

I remember when those came out, my only thought at the time was that it was ludicrously expensive for a machine that is essentially a Powerbook without a battery. Not something I'd be particularly interested in, but certainly rare.

It is a generic USB PCI card. Probably works, but I never tried an USB device on the machine yet.
