What may be tell tale is, did you actually see the name Quadra on it (I
came in late, so I responded before without realizing you called it a
Quadra). If so, then it is not a 9600. A large tower with Quadra on the
name plate would be a 900 or 950 (there were no 96x in the Quadra line,
although there were some 6xx, but no 69x and the 6 series were all
desktop cases, not towers). Slightly smaller tower would be the 8xx series

A Q950 still isn't a bad machine, but not as big of a deal to abondon (I
have a WorkGroup Server 95 which is the Quadra 950 with a different
software package).
