For CPU power and ease of adding reasonable disks, not much beats the VAXstation 3100's. The VAXstation 3100 is Digital's powerful, low-cost VAXstation for high-performance graphics applications. It was first introduced in 1989. The VAXstation 3100 is a member of the VAX family of computers. Based on the second generation of VAX chipset technology, the VAXstation 3100 redefines low-end VAX computing by delivering three times the performance of previous entry-level VAXstation workstations. It is quiet (when you replace the RZ23 hard disk with a more modern drive) and small, compared to other VAXen.
"The VAXstation 3100 is Digtal's powerful, low-cost VAXstation for high-performance graphics applications. The VAXstation 3100 is a full member of the standard-setting VAX family of computers that has sold over 200,000 systems
since the introduction of the VAX 11/780. Based on the second generation of VAX chipset technology, the VAXstation 3100 redefines low-end VAX computing by delivering three times the performance of previous entry-level VAXstation
The VAXstation 3100 provides an integrated computing environment that offers you a unique combination of desktop VAX computing, industry-standard personal productivity tools, and transparent access to distributed applications and
resources. Through DECwindows, Digital's new windowing interface, the VAXstation 3100 enables both sophisticated and novice users to access all the power of the network through their desktop applications. And the VAXstation 3100 workstation is easy to buy, easy to install, and easy to use.
Featuring a versatile packaging design, the VAXstation 3100 can be configured as a diskless network node, a standalone workstation, or a system that can simultaneously be a workstation and a server for up to seven other VAXstation
3100 workstations. The VAXstation 3100 can be configured for a broad range of needs, running applications that provide solutions from the factory floor to the executive offices."
