I was actually speaking of the AIX ThinkPads, and not specifically of
anything MCA. I'm pretty sure the 850 isn't MCA anywhere.

No, actually, I paid a lot of money for it thinking I'd get a way cool AIX
laptop. What I got was a whole lot more (or less, depending on your point
of view), but it was my first exposure to AIX and I learned a lot trying
