Is there any reason to upgrade a teal box except to put Impact graphics in

The last two I acquired were ...

Teal R4k-200, Extreme, 128 MB, 2 GB, CD-ROM, DDS tape, external SCSI floppy,
KB, Mouse - $50

Purple R10k-195, Max Impact, 256 MB, no drives or sleds - $50

Both sellers _delivered_ 'em!

Look at the back.

Max Impact video has a 13w3 in the top of its three slots, a blank slot in
the middle, and a DB-9 on the bottom.

Extreme video has a 13w3, a mini-DIN, and some other round thing, all in one

(No guarantees that something inferior doesn't look the same, though.)

If there's an RJ-45 in one of the slots, that's possibly fast Ethernet.

Sleds cost about $25 on eBay.

The clock speed is slow (max 250, probably less than 200), and they aren't
going to sell 'em to anyone else in Astoria.  Offer 'em $10 each, maybe $20
for the purple one.
