        Trust me, it's 8 slots of 72pin SIMMs. The early non-Turbo
Color slabs had 8 slots while the later Turbo slabs had 4 slots.
Also, I tried using standard non-parity double sided 8meg SIMMs in
the machine and it didn't work. The only NeXT I've seen listed as
supporting more than 32meg is the '040 Cube. Otherwise, as far as I
know, 8meg 72pin SIMMs will only work in the Turbo's.
