When I hear "VAX" I think either VAX-11/780 (because that's The One
To Have if you're a collector) or vaxstation-3100s, cuz that's what
I've got piles of, at home and at work.

Seriously though - when I hear about current VAXen, I immediately
think "chip fab line".

On the other hand, when I hear "PDP-11", I think "nuclear reactor".
