What can be said about this 'wedge', then, and not swear about the Italian Mafia?

Well, it's the only machine I've seen that enables you to load HIMEM.SYS when you have exactly 1024KB RAM, which is nice, as it allows you to move parts of DOS high, ovr the 640KB limit, freeing up crucial RAM for applications.
Also, like most 'wedges' from this generation, this one also has room for a half-length ISA-card.
