    Actually, it wasn't set out for sale.  One of the attendees was chatting 
with me at my HP 1000 exhibit, and mentioned he had one out in the car.  I 
bought it from him.  He was looking for people interested in HP hardware and 
found my exhibit.

BASIC, Printer and Mass Storage ROMs are built-in, and it also came with a ROM Drawer with Plotter and I/O ROMs installed.
