Ah, but Alan Poston is buying me a 4000 at NASA and I'll be porting to it.
So- Matt- I can't figure out from the low tech content web pages- is
the 4000 more like a 8X00 (i.e., with a TurboLaser bus) than a AlphaStation600
(with a CIA chip set)? The pictures make it look like the latter, the
numbers make it look like the former.
