Well, that, and no instant on/off--ok, you can sleep it, but still...
I still remember my 230, and it was a bear to wait for booting. ;-)
(Still have a 280c and 2300 floating around somewhere--no hard drives,
probably, but would boot if I had them--have system disks for them
somewhere) Oh, and I never got them to communicate too well to my
Newton, for some reason--I think it was the dual-purpose serial ports.
Oh, and the 230 had no color. ;-)
