So my machine labeled "VAXstation 3100" (owner thought it was a DECstation
:-( ) could look and thus be completly different than an other VS? (just
out of curiousity)

What I know is that the 4 Mb extension board of the VS is a bit bigger

different size then the 2 Mb modules of a Personal DECstation 5000/25.
