I remember part of the  history mentioning they  wanted  it   to be  known 
as an instrument controller  at  first....

Good  work on getting the 2116A working again.

Anyone care to speculate on  the initial low sales of the 2116A? was it
because HP weren't well known  for producing computers at the time or
was the $22K asking price too high  compared with say DEC's less than
$10K for a  PDP-8?
