Agreed... I'm not in the area, so I'm going to pass on these, but they
_are_ nice machines (RT-11, P/OS (RSX-11 variant), Xenix, and 2BSD).
For the less-well-familiar, the Pro 350 has an F-11 chip (11/23), and
the Pro 380 has a J-11 (11/73). RX50s are common (ubiquitous?) and a
large number of units had a hard drive between 5MB (RD50/ST506) and
30MB (RD52/various). They might not be as fast or as easy to expand
as random cards in a Qbus chassis, but they are a nice package if you
just want to dabble in the PDP-11.
If the 'stand with wheels' is the model I'm remembering, it's a bit
uncommon (most folks just put the Pro on their desk).
The mono monitors are likely to be VR201s which work with DECmates and
Rainbows. The color monitors _might_ be VR241s, which also work with
Nice haul for someone close.
P.S. - if anyone happens to have a spare PSU for a Pro380, I'm
casually looking for one. (I think there are two capacities in the
same form factor - there was a Pro325 that was floppy-only - not
enough juice to run a hard drive).
