I do not know if Data General had a big base in the UK. Probably not.

I have a couple of machines, no racks, but they are buried so here are

I would say a Nova 4 is 6U or 7U tall, rack mounted (of course), and
maybe about 70 pounds. A "standard" 16-bit Eclipse (S/130, S/200, S/230)
is about the same size, but I think a little lighter. Data General made
their machines lean - most everything fits on (rather large) single cards.

Look for Carl Friend's Minicomputer Museum on the Web. It is THE place to
