What kind of internal do you want (XL-type, XE-type, or the new Flash-type internal version)?

Hi Patrick-

Yes, there are several types. The internal versions previously sold were XE-type (installed under the cpu), and the XL-type (installed under the OS-Rom). You would have to buy/trade with someone for the older XL-type.

Steve will be letting us know when the new flash-type is available. Each type has it's own advantages. The new internal flash-type looks very useful to me, since you can evidently flash a new OS into the unit every time you want to change it. (?) You can read more about it under Mr-Atari's announcement thread. I'm sure Steve's docs will explain this fully. Perhaps not quite as flexible as a 32-in-1 OS, but quite flexible, none-the-less.
