The 11/34 is a great small-to-medium Unibus system.  In the full-sized
BA11-K, plenty of room for peripherals.  The only real limitation I
ever had was the 256K memory space (that's where the 11/24 comes in
handy - not faster but fatter).

It will be interesting to see if that price holds up to real-world demand.
