No, they're not talking about the same thing. A 700/RX (I think) is
an X terminal, meaning it wants to talk X over a network (TCP/IP or
maybe DECnet, and yes it probably has an Ethernet interface built-in)
with X client programs running on other hosts. A 700/44 is a
traditional terminal that wants to send characters across a serial
line. In particular the 700/44 emulates a PC terminal and DEC
VT52/100/200 terminals. It doesn't do all that HP block-mode
stuff that I ramble on about sometimes.
