Well... there was only one F1 ever made. Foonly did make a couple of
other models in quantities >1, so it may have been one of those. The
system was by no means portable.

It is possible that some of the Lisp gurus at Symbolics would want a
machine like F1, but trasporting it from SoCal to the Cambridge would've
been an expensive proposition. Still, there may be another lead to
pursue there.
