Whoa! The IIsi has a full 32 bit bus, unlike the LC and LC II. After all,
the IIsi is a _real_ Mac. :-) The system runs at 20 MHz, and with a 68882
added to it (as I have) it runs fairly consistently at half the speed of a

YHS:QSI! (A slightly irate IIsi owner :-))

Nobody's been saying "buy a '386sx"...  We've been saying, "Hey, look...
With a monitor, the Falcon030 4M/65M costs as much as a Mac LC II 4M/80M
or a '486sx/25 4M/100M...  Hmmm."

The '386sx is just like the '030 in the Falcon...  A 32-bit processor
hampered by a 16-bit bus.
