Hey Eldee I had a great purchase experience at J&K Sales. I would suggest
the cheapest option and just buy an MP21K motherboard and swap it
yourself. It is quite simple and there are greatdetailed instructions at

  Fellow listers,

  There are a ton of things I'd like to try with my
  MP2K, but as most of them are networking-related, the
  limited amount of heap is becoming a real problem. So
  I suppose I have two alternatives:

  1. find someone to upgrade my MP2K to 4MB DRAM
  2. purchase a used MP2100

  I had been leaning towards the first option, mostly
  because my unit is in excellent shape, the screen has
  no scratches, and as far as i can tell, the backlight
  is still of reasonable strength. The downside, though,
  is that I cannot seem to locate anyone who still
  performs this upgrade other than the chap who runs -- and from all of the history in the
  archives, I'm more than a little wary about handing my
  MP2K over.

  Can someone recommend anyone else who can do this? Are now more competent, honest, and
  customer-friendly in the past?

  The second option is starting to sound better, though.
  At $75+shipping each (and whatever hidden costs that
  will be sprung on me after the order is placed) for
  the "upgrade," perhaps a second-hand 2100 is a better
  choice. In this way, I get two functioning units, and
  maybe even at less than the cost of the upgrade's
  final tally. I've heard positive things about J&K
  Sales, and their "near-mint" units are around $150. On
  eBay other sellers are offering for even less.

  So folks, dollar-for-dollar, what's the better deal in
  your opinion?
