I remember the Reno, I kinda wanted one when I was a kid :) It was a desktop drive that could also work as a stand-alone portable drive.

Might buy one to add to my collection of weird PC controllers, if I do find one for cheap. Looks truly craptastic :D

Thought the same as soon as I saw the 030, but apparently it's really not PCMCIA-friendly if you use more than 4MBs.

The M1438 is a great CRT (imho much better than the over-hyped 1084S) and the 030 will pretty much suffice you in doing almost everything with your 1200....

Indeed, it doesn't see much use on my A4000. I mainly have it in case I somehow screw my install entirely and I need to reinstall. Everything else is transferred over network.
