If you want your Network Station to run 'traditional' PC applications
like Lotus, Excel, WordPerfect, etc. there is some truth in the above.

These kinds of applications are not a good choice for an NC though, are
they?  Much to much traffic for the network, and the brick just doesn't
have the guts for it.  I was thinking the NC really is, at least for now,
a vastly improved terminal, not a cut-rate PC.  

I'd think one could happily replace a 3196 with one of these and give the
user 256 colors, a mouseable green screen, and e-mail, and later on,
perhaps a good GUI interface to replace the green screen.  Later on the
other things will come.  But for now, anyone needing to buy a terminal
might choose an NC instead.
