I'm quite fond of "older" HP workstations since they are built like a tank
and perform quite nicely. Although the newer ones (B1000 et al) my scream
performance-wise I don't like the PCish attitude of their "funky" cases...

As to an appropriate HP-UX Release, I've 10.20 and 11i that run well on my

AFAIK the C160 and C180 have both a Fast/Wide differential and a Fast/Narrow
Single-ended connector on the back...
