        Here's the specs (as far as I can determine) from my
Magnum 4000.  The label on the front say "Mips ARCSystem,
Magnum 4000 PC-50".  It's in a typical gray metal desktop casing 
with a plastic fascia.  Floppy is mounted vertically on the right
side and there are two 5 1/4" bays to the left of the floppy.
On the back, everything is very neatly labelled with what appears
to be stick-on plastic.  On the bottom right on the back of the machine
there is a small white barcode sticker which I assume is the
serial number, which says "EE02294".  It has two serial ports,
one 25 pin, one 9 pin, thick ethernet connection, and audio/mouse
connections.  Video is a rather odd wide connector that has 
three large round connectors within, as well as several smaller
