Bear in mind that from the perspective of us CP/M folks, demanding absolutely
rigid hardware compatibility is quirky...

FWIW, my absolute favorite box of all time is the VAXstation 4000/60 or /96;
you can get everything out of the box quickly with no tools. In contrast,
it's only been in the last few years that I've gotten coordinated enough to
keep from mutilating my knuckles every time I go into a VAXstation 2000...
