An interesting article. The original sale price in 1960 was $24,500.
The unit also ran off of standard line voltage (110) and required no
additional cooling. It could be moved from any location to any location
and used just about anywhere.

So this begs the question, why did the PDP-8 create the "mini-computer"
class and not this or other machines with similar attributes?
