    What you've heard about Shreve is true. You have a much better
chance of getting what you ordered from Joe Blow on eBay. One guy on
eBay worth dealing with is "Old Mac Milt".

    Reputable places I've dealt with personally:

    Small Dog: <> These guys are great!

    MegaMacs: <> I bought an open box 7600
from them. No problems.

    Other World Computing (OWC) has a build-to-order service for some
older Mac models: <>
(Note: I've ordered twice from OWC with no problems, but there are
some complaints out there about wrong orders being sent - nothing
like Shreve through!)
