Heh - I got given a 1000E for free last week. Tell you what Dave, you can have it if you pay postage :-P

This particular one used to run the POS equipment at a supermarket and has a single system board with dual SM51, 256MB, serial MUX + serial. The internal disk board is interesting - holds four SCA SCSI disks and is cabled externally to an SBus wide SCSI card on the system board.

Looking at this machine, it is easy to see a direct lineal relationship to the deskside E4500. All the major design concepts have been carried straight through.
