It really doesn't have anything to do with the video. It's just that
the first bank is soldered on instead of being normal SIMM slots. I
believe the max settings on RBV end up being something like 320kB
usage for video on both models. I'm pretty sure RBV maxes out at
8-bit color. However, it's true that wouldn't leave much wasted on a
IIsi if we can't use the rest of it.
