Unfortunately finances, work and life dictate that my beloved toy must go...

This YP3700 is a little over two months old (when I exchanged the unit). Would make a great upgrade for a 5x00 user, or as another machine for the collection.

- Linux Kernel
- X Windows!
- GTK+/IceWM
- MMC/CF slots
- USB dock
- Hancom Office
- Lots of software, games, mp3, vlc etc. included
- Runs Qtopia 1.7, Zaurus compatible

Mains adaptor included which can be used in most countries, UK plug adaptor included.


Please do NOT reply on this thread or PM me, your comments may not be read. Use the contact seller option on eBay.

This is a UK sale, I will also ship within the European Union territories, buyer pays all additional shipping costs. Will ship outside EU if needed, again there maybe additional shipping costs. PayPal only.

I'm asking about the C3000 but will guess the C1000 will be the same.

Is there anyone here who has had another C series machine and a C3000? I'd like to know how the keyboard compares, the C3000/1000 keyboards look like real solid keys but so did the C860/760/750/700 pics until I got one - it was more like a ZX81 keyboard - except it worked better.

Can some kind soul explain what the keyboard is like and if able to compare it to the Cxxx keyboards, that would be great.

With the release of the C1000 which like other C series machines, uses internal flash memory, I was thinking what a naff idea it is. After all, flash wears down and eventually dies so the only logical reason for it in my mind is that people will have to keep buying new hardware. Using an internal microdrive doesn't solve the idea as that can develop bad sectors and unless it's replaceable in the 3000, it leaves the machine a brick. I know the arguements about levelling etc. but even on my old C860, it started to deteriorate since I was coding and compiling and using swap maybe, the 512MB lexar card I had died a little while after my C860 went. That card wasn't even 18 months old.

So, I was wondering (and this is semi-directed at Anton wink.gif ), can't a ROM be built to move all read/write operations to a CF card/Microdrive or SD card? Selectable by the user during the flash operation? Mounting the internal flash as read only? I'm not too knowledgeable about building ROMs etc on the Z so maybe someone out there knows or would like to share their opinions on the wisdom/merits of slowly rotting flash.

I'm quite attracted to the C1000, even with a VGA screen tongue.gif but the flash thing is a major issue for me, I'd really like the option to wear out a replaceable item rather than a non-replaceable one.

FYI Mac lovers...

Well, the much hyped Cherry OS is out, I've just had a play and discovered it's no different to PearPC, infact, I could only get it to boot by using a PearPC disk image.

Check out www.pearpc.net, look at the comments for the news item announcing it, you'll find people have been pulling it apart and discovered it's a repackaged PearPC ripoff. There were discussions late last year about it being a rip-off, which the author was quick to deny. However with the actual release of the product yesterday, today it's become very apparent that this product, like the test copies are just repackaged PearPC emulators. No 80% emulation speed, in fact I think it's a bit slower than PearPC.

And the moral of the story is, if you want a Mac, buy one. Or don't get a pig to do the job of a panther.

I''ve found a CD for my old Zaurus 5500, if anyone ever needs it just PM me or post here. I'll hold onto it for the time being.
