There was a small PDP-11 about the size of a MicroVax 2000. It was
called the PDT. It had an 11/03 CPU, 64KB, 8" floppy (RX01), and some
serial ports. RT-11 was the only supported OS as the floppy took a
special driver. It was a real lemon, we had a few, proved to be very
unreliable as they would constantly overheat. They were also
susceptible to static discharge on the case, so they didn't work too
well in carpeted offices.
