Puzzle Answer!
Time to test your general knowledge of the Pronto! Which of the following four statements is false?

A) (30.9%)  The Philips Pronto RU940 has more user memory than the Philips Pronto TSU2000.
B) (14.8%)  The Marantz RC5200 has less user memory than the Marantz RC5000i.

D) (21.1%)  The Marantz RC9200 has more user memory than the Philips ProntoPro.

The clue for this contest is the phrase user memory -- not total memory. As per information available in the FAQ, here is the complete solution.

A)  The RU940 has 1404kb memory, while the TSU2000 has 940kb. Thus this statement is TRUE.
B)  The RC5200 has 1220kb memory, while the RC5000i has 1404kb. Thus this statement is TRUE.
C)  The CHAD has 697kb memory, while the RAV-2000 has 444kb. Thus this statement is FALSE.
D)  The RC9200 has 6900kb memory, while the ProntoPro has 6144kb. Thus this statement is TRUE.
