No real help, but some memories...

We got one of these things in the department where I was working... We
made the stupid msitake of not getting the built-in (monochrome) plasma
display, we used an external EGA monitor. It was a rather inconvenient to
move around.

The other thing is that it had relatively few (8?) high-resolution timing
channels and a lot (64-ish) 'state' channels. This would be ideal for
looking at a microprosessor bus, but it wasn't that useful for general
logic trobubleshooting. I much prefered the ancient Tekky analyser we had
(which was fortunate as nobody else could figure out how to use it, so it
lived on my bench...)
