Ahh...I think that might be what they have back at school.  I've never used
them, but heard they were really nice.  I knew my 1650 was an older model,
worth maybe $1K.  I picked it up used at a swatmeet about 2 years ago.  The
guy said their lab was getting rid of all their obsolete equipment.  But hey!
It's great to have around...assuming I ever get the time to figure it out.  :)
