I saw a 660 in Portland Oregon about 5 years ago at a scrappers. No
Kbd or monitor.
I have a DN 570 in storage with KBD and monitor.
About 17 years ago I had 4 320s and 330s. I wish I had kept one. I
really liked playing with it.
I sold my last 330 in a farmers auction ourside of Canby Oregon in
1995 or so. It may still be in some farmers barn.
There used to be several DN10,000s in the Portland area but that was
about 10 years ago,
