Ok, I am replacing the HP terminal with either a Macintosh SE or an
Apple IIc+...

Environment = Linux running simh pdp11 running RSTS/E V7.0 (with
telnet from all my other machines)

Has to sit in a 2" x 2" square area on my desk, although I think all
three choices overflow the
intended area.

Please weigh in on the following three scenarios:

Door #1 - Macintosh SE
- Have an appletalk laser printer for this machine
- perhaps smaller footprint.

Door #2 - AppleIIc+
- Imagewriter instead of a laser printer if any printer at all.
- Coolness factor (8 on a scale of 1 to 10) 10 would be a real DEC
- No Terminal software at hand.. (would beg someone to send me a

Door #3 - HP Terminal
- already and still hooked up, and works ok... but.
- it's not *also* a computer that I want to get back on display.

Your comments requested.
