I have some 11/44's and 11/84's that can go fairly cheap (well as far as
unibus system go). I also have 11/05's and 11/10's that depending upon
configurations start at ~$500.
I also have a "real" 11/83 (ie not an 11/53 that was upgraded) that can
go for ~250 or so.

I also have some 11/780, 11/780-5 and 11/785 that we can talk about. :-)
