Okay. I'll probably get flamed because I merely mentioned the Z80,
but still:

Zilog recently released an improved version of the Z80, the so-called
ez80. I haven't really delved into the specifactions of the darn 
thing (Don't have a PDF-capable text-console at the moment ;), but
according to some MSX-freaks, it should be fairly easy to replace
an existing Z80 with that ez80 thing -- It's supposed to be four
times faster than a plain Z80 on the same clockrate. The ez80 can
do more (It can handle clockrates up to 80 Mhz, for example, and
it does have a 16 MB linear address range), but considering the
price of the thing (Rumor says that it'll be something between $3 
and $10), it might prove to be very interesting to replace the
128's Z80 with this thingy. More info on http://www.zilog.com/ez80.
You'd better have an Acrobat reader handy.

Any ideas?
