A 4M Plus is just a 4 Plus with a PostScript Level 2 SIMM in one of the
memory slots.  If you buy it as a 4M in the first place instead of
buying the PostScript SIMM separately and installing it yourself, it
also comes with a slightly different logo on the case.  There's no Mac
specificity to it at all; the M basically means it has PostScript
support, and that's all.

The 4P is sufficiently different from the 4/4M/4 Plus/4M Plus family
that I would be surprised if a 4P formatter board would work in a 4/4M/4

I believe the correct formatter board is part # C2038-60004.  There may
be several different part numbers that will work.  The 4P's formatter
board appears to be part # C2006-69001.

 It's not the years, it's the mileage.
