It's a Microbotics VXL-30:
SoftHut has one as-is with a 2M RAM expander board for $25, but I want
to avoid putting any more money into this box until I (a) get at least
Workbench 2.1 up and running on it, with a hard drive and SCSI CD-ROM,
and (b) see how the A4000 turns out. If the 4K is good, I'll use that
as my main system, and then *maybe* equip this A2K with a Video Toaster
eventually. The other A2K that's coming with the A4K; depending on its
config I may just get it up and working and give it to a friend who wants
to relive hours playing Dungeon Master.
