Hallo Nick,

> Would the 1571 be a better starting point considering the larger ROM

I forsee two problems:
- the 1571 isn't that common, a lot of people have troubles already to find
one for normal use.
- the larger ROM means I have to replace original code by my own one. That
could mean I accidently removed code that some programs rely on: I loose

> (standard pinouts) available

Then please check out a 1541-II: you can put a 27256 in it and use its
complete range without any soldering! The extra 16 KB means I can leave the
original code almost intact

> a 2.5" HDD could be made to fit.

As the 1571 can contain a 5.25" drive, I don't see any reason why it cannot
contain a 3.5" HD. 2.5" HD's are rare, especially the bigger ones. So I
presume it is an type error :)
