i THINK the 760X series is the first to have the fan..
so, if there is a little grille in the middle of the back of the machine,
then you do have the 760X series machine with the P-166..
that and the 3gig drive were the main differences..
ALSO, lest i forget, the memory is accessed by removing the HDD.. that is
the first machine not to have the door in the bottom to access the
one more difference..
the 760X series can use one 64meg DIMM and one 32meg DIMM, together with
the 16megs onboard, for a total of 104megs memory..
