  No, that's a fine description. They're 1 Mb RAM cards for use in the HP
9000 200 series computers. They'll also fit in some of the 9000 300 series.
 The 9000 200s include the 9836 that we were recently discussing here on
the list. Here's a list of all of them: HP 9816 (aka 9000 216), HP 9817
(aka 9000 237), HP 9826 (aka 9000 226), HP 9836 (aka 9000 236), HP 9920
(aka 9000 220).

  I have several of these machines. I can use those cards if you want to
part with them.
