Note that it's not a real Apollo capable of running Domain/OS - the machine's 
all HP and just trading on the nostalgia value of the Apollo name. From memory 
it's a well-engineered box inside, but it's no nicer than a Sun / DEC Alpha of 
a similar period (i.e. it's Just Another Desktop UNIX box).

It's the sort of thing commonly found lurking at the bottom of university 
store cupboards, awaiting disposal for free just as soon as someone actually 
notices that it's there :-)
