[NTLK] looking for 130

After researching, I have come to the conclusion I need a MP130

I already have keyspan and serial cable
I don't want to have to find / buy a dongle just to sync (mp2xx need it)

my OMP will not sync in OSX because it is OS 1.05...apparently you
need os 2.0 for newtsync to work

I want backlight...130 has backlight and 2.0, no need for dongle.

mp2xxx are expensive on ebay, I might as well just (reluctantly) buy
a new palm for 150 bucks to do what I need to do.

I don't need to fax, email, wifi, bluetooth, tcp-ip, play games etc.

I just want to sync addressbook, ical, notes, to-dos etc. but I like
to use Apple product, not palm, Win CE etc.

MAIN QUES: Anybody have a really nice condition (no parts to find/buy
and no broken bits or obvious scratches or really worn) 130 for a
reasonable price to sell or trade up for OMP?

I would consider a 2000 or 2100 but it seems the only well priced
ones are busted or damaged or missing essential parts to sync and
use. I don't want to buy one and then find out I need
to spend more money just to get it to work with OSX.
