Hmmm, most of the links aren't on this system, but: is first rate, I HIGHLY recommend
snagging the "Lighthouse Apps" under "Apps". They're commercial software
such as a Word Processor, Database, Graphics, etc. that have been released
to the user community.

Watch comp.sys.vms, might take a while, but you should be able to find a
good deal there. Also, don't limit yourself to VAXen if your main reason
for wanting one is for VMS, you might find a decent first generation Alpha
for less than a good VAX. If you do get a VAX, do yourself a favor and get
one that is new enough to have SCSI.
