How much would the 256K & 1 meg version of the MIO run me...
Locally? M.O.?
Also how is the MIO compared to other
Ramdisks???
Are there others where you can buy
ready to use by the time you recieve
it which cost cheaper???
Please Help!

        To start with, the AXLON Ramdiskis probably cheaper.  It doesn't have
the I/O ports or device number control
that the MIO has. (MIO can be left on
and configured as D1: to boot your
computer ultra-fast if you like that
idea.)
 Internal upgrades can be very
cheap if you install them yourself, and
can be used for more than just Ramdisks.The additional uses require that you
learn more about your computer.
        As to price, your best guage is
the advertising in Antic or Analog--the
public Atari-oriented magazines.  Loacl
prices will be at least 10% higher, but
the SERVICE is usually well worth the
extra buck.
                        Your Co-sysop

         Thanks for asking.
