I have two 256K models, upgraded to 1MB by MG66.  These both came with the perforated ends.  It's difficult to comprehend that ICD used solid ends for some of these!  I don't remember the serial numbers, but one is fairly low; the other higher.  I did have to send one back under warranty, but it was a chip failure.  Neither of these ever overheated, but I didn't leave them turned on for long periods of time, as with a BBS or powered on to preserve the ramdisk.  They both can run a CF card for a hard drive with a SCSI-->IDE converter, but they are quite a bit slower than the IDE+2.

I saw MANY MIOs w/ LITERALLY CHARCOALed BURNT BLACK boards under especially the DIODES and the [AWFUL] ZIP RAM.

Out of every 20, maybe one or two was worth fixing.

 

Nice Idea. Poor design.
