Actually an 11/70 in one rack would be one of the smaller
configurations. I've seen them occupy 3 and 4 racks.

If you are looking for a small 11 consider one of the qbus
systems. These tend to be much smaller. You can get an
11/23 or 11/73 in a largish desk top of tower configuration.
And they even run off of a standard wall outlet! Since these
systems are more modern they use a higher level of integration,
thus giving smaller size and lower power requirements. They
are also a lot cheaper to ship!
