Article #14 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: visitor Subject: RAMBO XL Date: Sun Jul 30 08:54:19 1989 I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE HAS HAD SUCCESS WITH RAMBO XL. WHICH IS THE BETTER BUY; RAMBO XL OR SWITCH TO AN 130XE? I AM AWARE OF THE COST DIFFERENCE. I AM INTERESTED IN THE BETTER VALUE. I AM INTERESTED IN MORE THAN ONE RESPONSE. ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Mon Dec 28 09:27:20 1987 ** My own personal value judgement is that you should get the 130XE, then check with either of the listed user groups for my write-ups on expanding ITS memory. Approximate cost is $100 for the installed upgrade at B & G. What you get is 320K of RAM which can be used (with Sparta DOS) as a 2042 sector RAM disk. The ONLY reason I would considerusing the XL is that the keyboard will survive longer. The XE problems can be cured by obtaining the pink replacement keyboard insert from B & G or Best Electronics in California. (If you do one of these, don't replace it until one of the keys on your computer has actually died.) To get more responses, put your question on the message base. Only one "sys-op" will be able to answer you in the Q & A section, here. Good luck with your upgrade! Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
