Ok, we've had threads similar to this one before, but
maybe not quite...

What are the hardest to find Classic Computers? What should not
be counted:

        Systems that never went beyond prototype
        Systems that they made only one of
        Systems that were custom-designed for a single
                customer and were only in limited production
        Systems that were not "general purpose" computers

Also not intended as the thrust of the topic:

        Systems you most of all want

Rather, the systems I'me talking about would have been
commercially produced, were general-purpose systems,
made in quantity of say at least a baker's dozen.

These systems might be generally available, and might
go for a price you can afford, but you just can't *find*
them where you're at.

Around here for me, it would be PDP-8's and Lisa's.
