Default HP Agilent 1652B Logic Analyzer/Scope

Hello,

I'm in the market for a scope and I might have the option to get a used Agilent 1652B for under $100 USD as part of a set of items a local university is getting rid of. I'm a lot more comfortable with analog scopes, but any reasonably good 100Mhz dual channel scope for under 100 dollars seems like a deal that is hard to pass up.

I have a few questions though:

Considering the age of the technology, will this scope work as well as a good analog scope (Agilent tells me that it was discontinued in 1994, support ended in 1999)?

Can I use standard probes or do I need something special for this scope?

How hard is it to find/make the probe modules for the logic analyzer?

In case I don't get the boot disk with the scope, is there any source anyone can think of for it? I've googled and asked Agilent with no good results, I'm still awaiting word from the university about whether it has the boot disk but the people in charge of selling the scope are having a difficult time of figuring out whether there is a disk with it and the professor who used it is gone from the university so I can't ask him.

Heres the datasheet for the product:

Thanks for any info,
Seth
