The QL Vision is just an ordinary monitor, painted black. It wasn't even a particularly good monitor.

I have one here that is dead - you're welcome to have it for the cost of shipping if you know someone who can repair old monitors. It died silently without any drama, but that does not mean a repair would be particularly easy or cheap.

Hi,

Just won this on eBay from a local computer disposal company:

M72e.jpg
M72e Tiny
M72e.jpg (5.17 KiB) Viewed 737 times

Lenovo ThinkCentre M72e Mini PC
Intel i5-3470T 2.9GHz / 4GB RAM / No Hard Drive

Just needs a hard drive, which I have some 320Gb 2.5" Hard Drives.

Plus point this this PC, no fan noise and runs very cool.

Should be good enough to QPC2.


Regards,

Derek

All the way from New Zealand. There must be a story behind this book, how it got there and if it was ever read.

Artificial Intelligence written by someone called Brain? There must be a link there somewhere? :D

Cheers,

I got a digital version this book.

It seems to be freely downloadable
