I recently bought a PowerBook 550c. After seeing them pop up for sale from time to time on eBay I decided I really wanted to buy one of them. I had a PB 540c for many years, and it was a great machine. I now regret selling my 540c, and even worse I sold the Rev C PCMCIA card cage. Now I want to find one for this 550c and I can't find one anywhere. Any ideas?
