Strictly speaking, the name REU (RAM Expansion Unit) is misused; it
doesn't name Commodore's devices.  CBM's 17xx models are called
REMs (RAM Expansion Modules).  The name REU was invented by Berkely
Softworks, Inc.; it is the entire group of RAM devices that are
supported by GEOS.

REMs, geoRAMs, and Quick Brown Boxes are the original REUs!
