My most obscure (though far from rare, as no one has ever heard of them)
is a Gnat System 10:
(a picture at)
Z-80 (4MHz if I recall on mine) with SCSI (Perhaps SASI at the time)
interface, lots of parallel and
serial connectors on back. An early all-in-one sold by a computer
making pretty decent
process control z-80 machines. We connected to a load of them back in
the late 70s on
some automation projects. Their "rack mount" computers were pretty damn
my System 10 still runs. It's a CP/M machine and I used it as my main
'terminal' to BBSs
and such for quite a while.
Also have an IMSAI, a Sol-20 (rescued from dumpster.)
Oldest tech is probably a "Typotron Display" crt from Sage computer
system (a 4 inch
storage tube about 3.5 feet long with for displaying textual context.)
me from a Sage console in about 1972 or so. Wish I had kept the whole
but it weighed about 800 pounds (guestimation from difficulty in loading
from a flatbed.) A friend got the *big* 14 inch main tube...
