MacIvory pricing

    ....  We were told by our salesman that the
    "full" MacIvory setup lists about $31k.  A minor discount for academia
    still puts it well above a figure of about $15k (academic) for a full
    MicroExplorer (which lists as you noted for $25k).  I'm just hoping
    our salesman is confused.

What's "full" versus "full" mean?  A "full" MacIvory or MicroExplorer
might list at considerably more than any of these figures if you include
a hi-res color graphics card, a color monitor, a couple of Nubus memory
cards, etc.

I was told at AAAI that the list price is $10,900 for the MacIvory board
pair by itself.

    Also: have there been MacIvory <-> microExplorer benchmarks?  How
    about Explorer II <-> XL 400 benches?

There are no public benchmarks available for either machine yet, as far
as I can tell.  For MacIvory, benchmarks would be premature since the
delivered machines are supposed to run at a considerably faster clock
rate than the machines they had at AAAI last week.  In the case of the
MicroExplorer, presumably benchmarks have been run, but to my knowledge 
the results have not yet been made available to the public.
