The 3000s are turbochannel machines -- kind of the "missing link"
between the DECStation 5000 series and the AlphaStations...  They're
built well, very stable, and rather quiet, although they do throw off
quite a bit of heat.  :)  (At least, my 3000/400 does...)

or do some searches on the Q's website and more stuff will turn up.
