The video boards (in the main unit, under the left disk drive) are different
between mono and colour versions of the 9836. You can't use a colour
monitor on a monochrome machine or vice versa. So if somebody
ends up taking 1 or 2 machines, make sure you get the right monitors.

An easy way to tell them apart without dismantling is that the colour
machine has a thumbwheel (contrast control) on the bottom.. Left
side, about level with the front of the drives. The mono machine
doesn't. The mono motor has a knob on the back, the colour
monitor has an IEC mains connector.
