I don't think so. This system appears to be circa 1977, and my
oldest DEC handbook is from 1981, so doesn't even describe the
old short, 4-slot BA-11M box that houses the CPU. But the
handbook does describe a PDP-11/03 system with just the
LSI-11 CPU, 8KW (16KB) and a single dual-drive RX01 storage
subsystem. That would obviously be 'reasonably' the minimal
system possible, I suppose.
If you were a bit more willing to part with money, then you'd
have an 11/23 CPU with one or even two RL01 5MB removable
cartridge disks. Woohoo, huge step up in storage capacity!
