    OK, I'll bite. I need on to cut up/modify one that isn't new. Ken hasn't sent my Christmas present yet. :)

    Gee, comes with batteries! (Don't they all?) :)

    Red S2 up for grabs. Somebody better beat my lowball $10.10 bid or I'll win this one too!

    @Ken: from BETTENDORFF Iowa. Isn't that where you had an Educator's class? Too coincidental IMHO.

    Is there a chart somewhere that describes the differences between the S2 VS S3?

    From a 30,00 foot view it looks like:

    1. S3 is green
    2. Hacker port is now accessible from the out side on the S3
    3. Battery charger is now lithium
    4. USB communication instead of 9 pin serial

    Thanks - poked round with the search function on the forum and on the Parallax site and nothing came up.

    There is also a socket inside that can accept the Parallax WX wi-fi module to allow wireless control and programming.

    The S2 is red - The S3 is more of a mint green...

    Sorry! ;-)

    This is a very kind offer. The S2 is great bot!

  • A cheap S2 in @xanadu 's backyard, Vista CA. Everyone can use an extra S2. I'll be downright disappointed if he doesn't outbid my $1 lowball offer. He can do a local pickup and save $11 shipping!
