I always thought that you cannot add (PMI) memory to an 11/93.
There are two versions of the 11/93. One with 2 MB, the other
with 4 MB of memory _on board_. And that?s it.
If you have an 11/93 CPU with 2 MB on board, the board is just
half populated with memory. I don?t think you can add memory
externally. But I might be wrong ?

Just wish I could get some PMI memory for that 93.
?? The KDJ11-E in the -11/93 comes with a minimum of 2MB on the CPU card.
That's enough for almost 16 maximum-sized processes (assuming they aren't
sharing program texts - almost double that, if they are). Does one really
need more than that for vintage retro use?
Besides, the on-board memory operates at full speed (same as cache memory on
the KDJ11-B); even if you added PMI memory, the KDJ11-E has no cache, so it
would be a _lot_ slower than the on-board memory.
