Speaking of which, I just got the weirdest 8296 yesterday.  It has 
the 8032-type chassis but it's labeled 8296 on the back.  An embedded 
disk 5  1/4 drive is on the side of the monitor positioned vertically,
not below like a typical 8296D.  It's an OEM model sold by Malvern,
a company in England.  
It also has a coax connector and custom ROMS, etc.  It's not functioning 
at the moment.  I will be working on it to see if I can get it running.
I have a power converter for the UK.  I have to clean and re-assemble 
some of the parts that have shaken loose over time, first.
