I think we had this discussion a while back, but I  know that my 11/20 just
says 'PDP-11' on the front panel.  I've also  seen them with '11/20', which
is almost certainly a later naming as the -11  line grew.

There is an  old Vulcan saying: "Only Nixon could go to China."
ok just  re-clarifing.... so then w would be safe in reading the  unix 
history -   the 11 they had   since when they got it a  disk was not avail. (??? 
REALLY!!?? Hard to believe DEC  would  ship a  processor  without  disc  
i/o???  COMMENTS?  )   would   have  just  probably said  PDP-11
