My attempts to obtain a C1000 at a price I can afford have fallen through ... so now I'm looking at a C760 or C860. Which of these is more usable in the real world with Cacko 1.23? I'll be using it for PIM, wireless surfing, ebook reading, comix reading, carrying family pictures, and watching movie clips. I can just afford a C860 from PriceJapan.

Also on those lines, how big a card would I need to flash Cacko 1.23 onto my "new" machine? I've got 32MB CF and a 64 MB SD.

AFAIK, the 760 and 860 are identical. The colors are different, and the 860 came with some extra software in the box but that's it.

The 64 meg card is definately big enough for the Cacko installer. If you ever want to do a NAND backup or restore, you'll need a 256 meg or bigger CF card.

Thanks, DrWowe; I guess it's just a matter of which is available for how much, then. I see C860s at PriceJapan for cheaper (including shipping) than the C760s at Conics.net. Of course I'll have to flash to Cacko myself, but big deal, I'd have to flash Conics' anyway.

Is there an English conversion available for the standard Japanese ROM on the 860, or should I just get ready to flash it once it gets here?

Nemmine, I found Conics' English conversion guide. tongue.gif

I'll sell you my 5500 ... it's working, already flashed to the most versatile Sharp ROM (3.13), and comes with a nifty neoprene pouch from thepouch.com, an extra battery handconverted by Lauter ... and I'm letting it go cheap 'cause the flipcover broke and the CF slot-protector fell on to the subway tracks. $100 including shipping. Original software CD and USB cradle included too, of course.

It's really more fun to play with one of these and make up your mind about whether you really really want more Zaurus, fairly cheaply, before you commit to a later model.

I pretty much want anything with VGA. That is a nice deal but I can find decent SL-5500 on ebay for $130 with more.

That is good advise, it's what I did.

Someone should buy all the US ones that are $100 and bring them to the UK where you can get $200 for them on eBay. smile.gif

How much are you willing to buy a C-1000?

My Z is in pretty good condition to excellent condition with light scuff marks on the side which dont bother me at all. The screen is perfect, keyboard is perfect, it all runs great. It already has a screenprotector from brando and have an extra streamline screenprotector for the new zaurus. The screen has no scratches at all.

So why am I selling it?

I'm thinking of updating to a c-3100 just to store music when I go jogging. I figure I would sell it and because I was going to buy a 4gb compact disk anywho! I figure , "lets make it Internal."

you can pretty much trust me cuz i run zaurusvideo, zaurusthemes, and have been posting here for the longest time. I did try and sell my sl-5500 months ago and a few sd and cf cards but nobody was really interested. My sl-5500 all works fine but the frame/body just has had it and needs a new replacement. C1000 is fine.

Well, if any of you is going to China, then you can get a 760 or 860 (not sure which one it was) for 3500 yuen. I just watched an ad on satellite TV which lasted a whopping 15 minutes advertising the Z. They also claimed they had 20,000 units in stock.

Glad to see you finding what you're looking for ... I wanted a 1000, I'm settling for the 860.

thanks man. I sent you a Pm message regarding the paypal thing. Since it's my first time, I need to break the promise of sending you the unit til they clear the funds to my account. That is what they recommend as well. I checked the fund dates and it says it will not clear until the 15? That is crap! So I hope you can understand the problem.

Don't worry, I been here along time and I don't intend of ripping people off. I do understand what you go through cuz i waited about 1.5 months until my zaurus came in and i purchased it new from an unknown source off ebay. unsure.gif Since you don't need to go through customs like i did (almost 2 months wait), you should get your device within 2 days....from the paypal clearing the money so by next saturday, you should have it.

I was wondering if you just want me to leave it in english and let you dable with it? or do you want me to configure all the stuff like the turbografx emulator snes and nes, kino for divx playback....list anything else

Oh ok, thanks! Most people don't send stuff till funds are sent through. I did have someone send me stuff early before though. Saturday still sounds great. Thank you so much!

Keep it in English please. :-) Leave those apps on there too. I would love to have a Sega Genesis/Megadrive emulator running on there if you can.

ohmy.gif I live in china and all we get is either sl7500(about 2200RMB) or z1000(z3100andz3200are also available). I've never seen a 760 or 860 on any of the popular chinese auction sites. But the price of sl7500(with one year guarantee) is so good at this time.
