    I am planning to buy a Northgate Elegance 386 33 MHz system
to run UNIX and the X Window System (most likely ISC's 386/ix). 
The system is advertised heavily (in PC Magazine, Byte, PC World,
Infoworld) and includes the following:

    o 4MB RAM
    o 150MB ESDI hard disk
    o 64K cache SRAM
    o 3.5" 1.44MB and 5.25" 1.2MB diskette drives
    o 14" VGA Color Monitor (800x600 resolution) 
      with a 16-bit controller
    o 2 serial ports and 1 parallel port

    I would appreciate hearing from others with experience (good
or bad) in using this setup for X Window-based development.  I'll
summarize any e-mail responses.  I'll also check comp.unix.i386
and for replies.
