HP2114 on ebay

In case no one who would be interested noticed it, there's a pretty nice
looking HP2114 system for sale on ebay.

The 2114 is the first computer HP ever sold. It was an "acquired" design
from a company they purchased, and HP thought they could do a better design
so they came out with the 2100 series (followed by 21MX and 21MXE series).
But, not before adding the 2115 and 2116 to the mix which are "kissing
cousins" of the 2114.

The one on ebay looks to be in great condition, and includes software,
manuals, a bunch of I/O cards, an ASR33, a 2748A paper tape reader, Junk
ASR33 for parts, and junk 2748B for parts. They want $450.00 for it (pretty
high I think, but maybe not that much considering it's advertised as working
and includes spares). No bidders last time I checked.

I'm spending every ounce of spare cash I have getting my current HP systems
running, so I can't buy the thing at the moment. But - I wanted to point it
out for anyone interested in starting an early HP collection. It'd be a
great start.
