One with an NMI bus, naturally.  The low-end 8000s are pure VAXBI (I
have an 8300).

I'm sad I had to abandon a VAX 8530 when Software Results closed down
in 1993.  It was a bit large for home use, and I was never going to
have 3-phase power for it.

AFAIK, it got left for our landlord to dispose/sell off.  We only paid
$5000 for it a year earlier (nobody wanted them in the early 90s) so
it's unlikely he found a quick buyer.
