I just gave away last April a Pro 350 w/enhanced video (color), a color monitor, mono monitor, keyboard and vertical stand for the princely sum of $0 to a fellow that was willing to carry it away.

It had the last public version of PO/S installed, and I had seen it boot (but that was at Dave McGuire's house in DC, so it was a few years ago)...

It was a neat box, but it seemed like a huge collection of compromises to make a desktop PDP-11...

I always thought the Heathkit LSI-11 system was interesting, but that was expensive back in the day...
