    This PCB has eight 4x256K chips making 1Mb of memory + four 1x256K parity chips. It's a correct assumption that it fits four 30-pin SIPP sockets. Replaces four 256Kb SIPP modules.

    386SX was meant as a replacement to 286. Their performance was comparable, so was the price. Intel didn't extend 286 past 12MHz because 386SX debuted at 16MHz.

    If the memory serves me right, import duty on non-EU packages is only paid if the face value exceeds 120 and the calculated duty exceeds 7. That's not an issue usually. However there's is also VAT...
