   I have a Genrad unit that I picked up out of a scrap yard. I thought it
was just an external 8" floppy drive but when I opened it up I found it had
a complete PDP-11/23 system in it along with a hard drive! It even has
RSX-11M installed on it. It was a controller for some kind of circuit
board test station. My advice is to buy it if it doesn't cost much. Nice
things come in small packages!
