Tektronix Multi User Software Developement Unit. A customized PDP-11/23
(Only the CPU card is from DEC.) that runs UNIX V7. Comes with M6800 and
M68000 in circuit CPU emulator. AFAIK at leasst one list member owns a
machine like this too. (I still need those stand alone tools disks...
;-) )

Unfortunately I don't own this machines:
PC532: NS32532 CPU based AT form factor mainboard intended to run some
sort of Unix. (It is supported by NetBSD.) Soled as a kit, less then 200
where produced.

Symetrix 375: Half a VAX 11/750. Small desktop box intended to be an
affordable Unix machine. AFAIK Jolitz (the one from UCB/BSD) was behind
that project. Don't know how many where build, maybe a few hundred.

Sun Ultra 1 PCI: Actually a prototype that never went into production,
but some of them escaped from Sun.
