I may have owned a pair of those machines. I bought a pair of sx-16 for
$40 from a guy that said that he got them for a friend that did service,
but would say what company or organization.

I used to sort of collect Unisys PC's. My first couple were 286's with
MFM drives, then I got the 386sx-16's, then a DX-33, then a 486 server.
I picked up another 486 for family, and upgraded the 386DX-33 to a 486.
I still have the 486's, although they aren't currently being used.
