PowerBook 500-series owners should now be able to obtain Apple's PCMCIA Expansion Module (item M2995LL/A) from dealers. The unit, which fits into one of the battery compartments on a PowerBook 520, 520c, 540, or 540c, provides a pair of slots for type II PCMCIA cards. The module appeared on Apple's 12-Sep-94 price lists, and the company expects it will be readily available. [MHA]
