Another nugget of history from the usenet of yore:
"Stanford University Computer Systems Lab has designed and built a personal workstation that does not have a local disk. It is based around an MC68000. The vanilla SUN machine, as we call them, has a 68000 processor, 256Kbytes of memory on the processor board, a graphics board with a 1024x1024x1 frame buffer, and a 3Mbit Ethernet processor board. They are connected by a Multibus protocol, and housed in an 8-card cage with room for various expansions."
