Hi, I'm the proud new owner of a sleek, black Ultralite! I haven't
received the thing yet but already can't wait.

Here's an ad I placed in the misc.forsale.computers newsgroup:


Anyone out there has accessories for the Ultralite that he
wants to get rid of? It must be for the original V30 one -
the PC1701 or PC1702.

Specifically, I'm looking for:

o 3.5" Floppy
o RAM/ROM cards
o cheap copy of Works on ROM

I don't know what else is there. Anyway, please mail me if you
have any relevant stuff. Give me a quote!



Also, I have a question for you guys:

I read some discussion on the battery in the previous digests, and
was wondering what constitutes a cycle? Does the battery have to be
completely drained to count, or just any recharge? Also, if the
warning light comes on and I immediately stop using it, will it still
reduce battery life?

I thougt the molybdenum battery didn't have memory, but that obviously
isn't the case. So what's the difference then?

Another question:

Is LapLink compatible with Norton Commander's Link? I bought the UL
from someone and he lost the LapLink disks. How, then, should I transfer
files from my 486? The DOS 3.3 in ROM - is it the whole thing or just
COMMAND.COM? I guess I should wait till the machine arrives and see for
myself, but I'm too excited about it.
