The price tag is juicy but for serious development with a 4Kc I'd
recommend a MIPS Malta.  Forcing consumer hardware into submission may
be a fun project for a spare time hacker but in general isn't a very
productive process for somebody who needs to finish a job soon or needs
to additional hardware such as PCI cards, logic analyzer, additional
memory, other CPU types etc.
