See, I'm trying to get you to stop saying "a PDP".  There's no such thing.
There are families of PDP-n things, but there are wide differences in size, weight, and capabilities.

Your Intellec 230 would fit inside one memory cabinet of a PDP-10 with room to spare.  The entire PDP-10 system weighs tons.

Sorry.. I was being lazy.. I should have said 'a PDP 8/E'.  Obviously there are some pretty large PDP-# systems.
