A MicrovaxII in a BA32 is a mini. I VAX6440 is a super mini. VAX9000
certainly qualifies as MAINFRAME.

The '80s blurred mini/mainframe and VAX and AS400 type machines
were doing their best to foster that. The VAX (11/780!) was originally
called a superminicomputer. Then again a 8250 with a disk farm was
anything but mini.
