My 130 has about 150000 shortly after a restart, and after a garbage
cleanup, using Avi's Backdrop, and my 2K has about 100,000. So, yes,
the 130 does have more heap, but I think Ed was talking about the fact
that the 2K series has a whole lot more to begin with than the 130,
but you end up with less user heap than with the 130. That's the
shame. :-)

As to screen dimensions, I just measured my daughter's 2K, and it's
the same as my 2100, and, as I recall, I swapped displays from another
2k model into my 2100. They are interchangable. :-) But here's
something freaky. My 2100 has a darker screen than the 2000 when the
displays are off. Go figure!
