I like the BA215 form factor, but not the CPU options. Does anyone know, did DEC ever build a VAX that was more similar hardware-wise to a 4000-700 (where the CPU wasn't on the QBus directly) but was in an enclosure more similar in size to the BA215?
Nice find on the VAX 4000-50 "VAXbrick"!! I'd never heard of them! Looks like the quick specs show that the 4000-50 is supported in the BA215.
I did know about the desktop VAX 4000's with the QBus adapter, but then the brains aren't really in the BA215.
So, anyone on here ever seen a VAXbrick, or have one (and/or a BA215, preferably with VAX 4000 badges) they'd be willing to sell?
I'd also be really interested in re-acquiring a 4000 VLC. I'm kicking myself for having sold mine a few years ago...
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
