   Pizza box size HP computer with 68000 series CPU and HP-HIL keyboard
input. I'm still trying to figure out what monitor they take.

>7958 B

   External disk drive with HP-IB interface. 158 Mb. I think the internal
drive is ESDI.

>7959 B

    Same but ~ 300 Mb.

>32-track 9145 A

    Tape back up with HP-IB interface. I don't rmember the capacity. I
have a couple of these but I've never found the tapes for them. In fact, I
haven't even found the PN for the tape. These will read (but not write)
the 88140 tapes used on the 9144.
>there is also one keyboard

  If it has two RJ ? sockets then it's HP-HIL and used for the 345.

and a 46087 B Mech Eng Series 10 Pad

    I think that's the keypad with 20 some odd buttons that used mainly for
CAD work. It's also HP-HIL. You can daisy-chain the HP-HIL devices together.

  Yes, but it's not worth the trouble. You need a specail video card and it
costs as much as buying a GOOD PC monitor.

They have three BNC connectors in
