I am interested in selling my C3200 which I bought new in 2006. I used it a lot at first, but hardly none at all in the last year since I got a Macbook Pro at work. It has had a protective film on the screen since new and is in excellent cosmetic condition. I will post a picture if there is interest.

It comes with:

6GB Zaurus SL-C3200 with all original accessories and box
USB data cable
Ambicom wifi CF card
Leather holster
2 Extra screen protectors

Make an offer... I would prefer Paypal, though a money order would be ok as well. Also, I will ship US or International. I can provide contact information and feedback at head-fi.org for your peace of mind.

Due to financial straits, I am selling my brand new Zaurus. sad.gif I bought it from PriceJapan in June, and have the original packaging. The Z is in excellent condition with Cacko 1.23 installed along with a few extra packages such as Zudoku and X/QT server.

A complete package:

Sharp Zaurus SL-C3200, in the box with all original items
A-Data 4GB SD card
Ambicon WL1100C CF wifi card
1 USB host cable from streamlineCPU's
2 PDA screen protectors from streamlineCPU's (one is in use, one is in its package)
A Pelican 1020 waterproof microcase (red/clear top) that fits the Z perfectly
A great pen/stlyus advertizing the drug Flomax :-)

$600, shipped 2-day Fed-Ex in the USA
$500 for Zaurus, wifi, host cable, and protectors

I am a religion professor at a university in South Carolina. You can trust me, and I will provide full contact information so that you feel secure in the transaction.

edit: new lower price

Newbie alert! ph34r.gif

I noticed that as of now with the Linux 2.6 kernel, OZ is installed on the microdrive (as is pdaXrom and OpenBSD, if I am not mistaken). Cacko, however, is still installed in RAM, correct? Or, at least the basic core of it in Cacko lite, with additional packages elsewhere? Am I on the right track here?

My impression is that this would extend battery life because the Microdrive does not have to be working all of the time for basic OS operations. I have looked around for battery life comparisons with no success. Does anyone here have a sense of the relative battery life among the distros?

I am "5 seconds away" from buying a CL-3200 and wanted to confirm a few things before I pull the trigger.

First, Conics lists the 3200 as coming with the Sharp EA-75 worldwide power adaptor. The page for that adaptor says that it is the one that comes in the box, and works without a shape adaptor in the USA. I just wanted to make sure this is correct.

Second, I am looking at the Ambicon WL-1100C wifi card from buy.com. The wiki says that it does not block any ports, and that it works out of the box. Has anyone had a problem with this card?

Third, with the latest distros, is there any problem with high capacity SD cards such as these? Newegg 4GB SD cards

I am thinking of using an SD card for my documents and applications, and use the internal CF card for big files that I use less often (pictures, videos, PDF scans of textbooks). Does that sound good to you from a processor and battery standpoint? I'm still trying to sort out how the various distros use the internal flash viz. the microdrive and external cards.

I think I'm going to purchase from PriceJapan, though I haven't ruled out Conics or StreamlineCPUs. I would love to go with the stateside guys, but that extra $100 could buy a couple of gigs of extra storage. Thank you for any wisdom and advice!
