Just a sideways thought about the original question and the responses.  For
those not familiar with it, there's a nifty program called Mactracker
available here:
 that will give you history and specs on pretty much every Mac product ever

I have nothing to do with it, I've just used it for years now and love it.
I can't recall seeing many howling errors in it so far although I can't
claim I've looked for them.  In fact, the only mistake I can remember
finding is where it describes the Newton as "obsolete".  We all know how
ridiculous that is.

Apart from that, it's a great reference guide and a nifty way to keep an
inventory of one's personal Mac history.  It looks like it's also available
now as an iPhone app but I can't check that because I don't have an iPhone.
