    I decided against Swan and bought a Northgate. A 486-DX50. Northgate was a higher quality brand back then. Until I plugged in the Teco monitor they decided to substitute for my Panasonic. We heard a loud snap at the dinner table. What was that? My Teco blew up. So much for my pro-Northgate feelings. The Teco went back (at their expense) and they Fed Ex'd a new Panasonic the very next day.
