    Well, it's small, lightweight, extremely silent, can use generic keybd,
    mouse and VGA monitor (not that usual with machines from that time), and
    more expandable in terms of RAM than the 712/60 and 712/80...

    Regarding the B180L+? Well, not only that it had L2 cache as standard
    (was an option with the B180L) it also comes with 100MBit Ethernet
    (B180L only has 10MBit)...

    Yes, it's a nice machine. And puts out more heat than even a i2000 with
    two 1st generation Itaniums ;-)

    I don't have a c8000 at home, but we have lots of them at work. Really
    nice machines ;-)

    Ah - I didn't recall there being a B180L with only 10Mbit - the B160
    yes, but I thought the B180 was "always" with a 100Mbit/s core
    Ethernet interface.

    Oops, You're right. There only was the "B180L+" and no "B180L". So it
    was the B160L that only had 10Mbit...

    Really sad that HP never made a 64bit version of the BxxxL(+) series.
    These were very nice and very reliable little machines...

    Well, the chip inside them - which was pretty much a system on a chip
    - including memory controller IIRC - was 32-bit, (PA-7300LC IIRC) so
    basically, it would have boiled-down to creating a PA-8XXX-LC.
