If someone is looking at 4 channel scopes that are in the 2000 class level (a step up from the 1000 class entry level, most vendors seem to have similar number schemes now) Rohde & Schwarz just announced their RTB2000 series. I haven't seen any full reviews of them yet. Bloggers are just getting them now.
The interesting thing is that they appear to have an launch edition deal where you can get a fully optioned out 4 channel, 300MHz + 16 digital channel RTB2004 for $2000 instead of the regular list price of close to $6000.
A lot more scope than is really necessary for vintage computer work, but if you do have a need for that level of scope, or just have the budget and want one, it might be interesting to take a look. If nothing else more players in the scope market is always good for driving prices down.
