Those are great little machines.  Back in the '90s, I used to host a collection
of the old archives and related material for these machines.  Peter da Silva
now maintains that archive:


One challenge in keeping those machines running are the disk drives.
For a machine like the one on eBay now, you need a HH ST-506/412
interface drive.  Working ones are starting to get pretty thin.  My 7300/3b1s
are the biggest reason I'm interested in the recent MFM drive emulators.
