Right. That would fit in with my theory that when certain products or
models were getting old, DEC rehashed them as DECdatasystems instead of
just EOLing them. Give 'em a new name, maybe a slightly different look,
and (probably) sell them for less. This could have been done to compete
with the other guys, like DG, who were selling less expensive computers.

There were 11/40 DECdatasystems as well. Look at the rack header panels
at you-know-where:
