Calm down and read more carefully next time.

They really didn't sell as many 16MHz ones as they did 25MHz ones. The whole 16MHz model was a bit of an afterthought, they slowed the machine down after someone decided that there needs to be an entry level model as well. As a result the 16MHz model is a bit more problematic with some expansions. The system was really designed to be a 25MHz system, so some timings are more marginal with a 16MHz motherboard clock.
Well he thinks it's a 16MHz model because he doesn't see a processor card in there (a A3640). Could it really be a 25Mhz model? Or did all the 25Mhz models have A3640 CPU cards?
