Well, I was lucky enough to find a demo unit near me yesterday. But
everything else which Larry says is right with it. If you try to order
it online, you can't. Staples told me yesterday they expected more on
Friday, but a subsequent check of their Atlanta warehouse turned up
zip, nada, 0. They then told me they were waiting on a backorder from
the manufacturer.

They didn't want to sell me the floor demo either. Until I reminded
them that Georgia has a rather nasty law concerning "bait and switch",
plus some other nasty laws concerning "abuse of the elderly".....

I now have 1 unit, still need one more.
