Where have you seen 386/ix for this price?  Please let me know.
Current list for just the OS and development system is $1400.
Their biggest bundle (with X11, TCP/IP, NFS, VP/ix, development
system, and X11 development system) is *$3000*, and that omits
the Text Processing system ($350) and TEN/PLUS ($140).

Even if you get the 1-2 user versions, if you want just the OS and DS
and VP/ix, you're looking at $1450 retail.  

Not exactly Microport pricing.

Reference: Interactive 386/ix Suggested List Prices, 1/89.
