What's better? The 386sx or 386dx. From looking at the suffixes, it
appears that it would be the sx, but then, wouldn't that make a
double-downgrade, and screw everyone? I'm just saying this, because I have
(had - it's now parts) Gateway 386DX/25, and Compaq 386SX/20 (SLT386s/20).
The Compaq could run more things quicker than the Gateway. Or is my case
just a freak of nature or because of that majic stuff called Cache?
