Well, after a long time of admiration for the VAX family, I'm finally ready to take the plunge and look into getting a VAX.
I plan to run OpenVMS on it and run it from remote X ( if a mVAX ) or local graphics ( if a VAXStation )
I'd like to spend no more than $300, and ideally get at least a VAXStation 4000 series or a mVAX 4xxx series machine, but I do know these are still in demand for some companies, so I may be unable to do this.
I'm willing to pay for shipping if its in the continental US, or if you're local to the Richmond area, or within an hour or two, I can meet you.
Thanks for looking.

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.
