To own one of these was a dream of mine. It is no longer. I would not buy it now, even if I had the space and the will to spend almost $3000.00 on it. I now prefer digital solutions like ConnectedText and InfoBase in Windows or nvAlt on the Mac.
I do think it is a shame that they are no longer to be seen in libraries, however.
