Nope. The keyboard and mouse are serial in nature. You shouldn't have
too much trouble finding a set, though. They're around. The keyboard
you want is the DEC LK201 or LK401. (I like the 401 better.) The mouse
you want is VSXXX. There are two kinds of mice. One has a mouse ball.
The other has two rollers that contact the desk surface at angles to
get vertical and horizontal movement. I like the latter better.
For the monitor, you want something that can deal with Sync-on-green (SOG).
