I had a request yesterday for a 286 or earlier machine, the person says
that somethings with the serial ports changed after that and the test
equipment gets communication errors on newer machines.

Another person wanted a 486-66 for a Massspectrometer

I know there was a problem with games that were written using the system
speed to time loops, I guess this also occurred in test equipment.
