the rackmount is a short head, there is a kit they sell to rackmount it. The long/med head has 2 switches on the front, EQ and harmonics switch, which are on the back of the shorthead. This enables it to be physically shorter and fit in a rack. No difference in sound. There are differences in sound between the version A and B heads though. http://homepage.mac.com/mesaboogie/MarkSeries.html

Yup, pretty much what Erock said, though with the Rackmount kit, the reverb doesn't fit so you have to go without it, so technically it's different.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

yeah, that's true, you do lose the reverb tank by rackmounting it. Not a big loss imo, the Mark IV reverb is notoriously flatulent, lol. I know a lot of guys that just unplug it anyway. The loop makes up for it.
