Gaaa! Don't do that!!! I went to eBay to search for a Kaypro and found a darn-near mint Kaypro II on auction! Do you know what my wife will do to me if I buy one of those!!!

Seriously, I would love a Kaypro II/16/anything. Many fond memories of the old Kaypro.

Pep, you name it, I got it - pick your poison :D
And, you'r enot far away (I'm in Broward County)
I have:
K-II
K-16
K-16-2
K-2
K-2x
K-1
mebbe I can spare a 10 (needs a HD, though. I can prolly scare 1 up, and give you a copy of either an Advent TurboRom or KayPlus ROM)

Manuals and software may take a bit. I buried those boxes, as I was going to go through the kaypros last - those are my faves of all.

GOt some Osbornes, too, Hint! Hint! Got a metric ton of O1 and O1a's, and 2 execs.

DAV - you talking about that one that the seller rated condition "A", but looks like it was thrown off the empire state building? That thing has more scratches and dents than Best Buy does!

The fan cover is twisted, and missing screws, the brackets to coil the power cable around are BOTH messed up, it has scratches and dents on literally every square inch....

If that seller rates THAT "thing" an 'A', boy, I would HATE to see a 'C'.
An 'F' must just be a bucket of mangled parts!

Attached are pictures of one of my Kaypro 16-2's.
Please excuse the dust on the bottom(back). This I would rate a 'High C', or 'Low B'
so, you can figure out what I think of the one on eBay :sarcasm:
