As someone else mentioned, the Compaq Deskpro 386/16 is your machine. Along with the harder to find ALR Access 386, this was the
first 386 desktop and it led to the dethroning of IBM as king of the PC hill, as IBM didn't release its first 386 machine until the
next year. Historically significant, powerful for its time, and you can use an ethernet card with it too!
