Hmm. Not quite classic yet, but because they hold sentimental value
(we used HP 9000 series 700 systems at the Cornell Program of Computer
Graphics) we'll let it slip this time.

I just picked up an HP Apollo 9000 model 715/50 on eBay for $60.
I figured it was an OK price to pay for such a machine, since I really
wanted to play around with one (older workstations seem to have become
my "thing" recently). You can find them on eBay all the time, many
many of them. Prices range from $50 to $300 depending on the model and
the conditions of other bidders. I seem to have gotten lucky on mine.

I haven't played with HP/UX since college (version 9.something, in
1994...) so I'm sure it'll be fun to re-aquaint myself.

Oh, and almost any series 700 will run 10.20, but that seems to be
the last version that will run on most of them.
