Hello! I am looking for a functioning or non-functioning VAX 11/780. I would be most grateful if anyone could reach out with information on where to find one!

Very best,

Do you realize that you responded to a post which is almost 30 years old?

Thirty years ago I could have given you an 11/780. It has since gone to
the recyclers.

Of course he knows he's responding to a post over thirty years old.; so am I. I had a DEC VAX 11/780 I acquired as a hobbyist, and now in retirement decades later, I would give my eye-teeth to get one now. I picked that old machine up thirty-plus years ago (longer maybe) and wish I would have kept it back in the barn to play with. I didn't know what to do with it then, and now, after decades of programing, I would love to. Yeah, it weights a ton, consumes a lot of juice, but hey, stuff is so crazy now it would be a ton of fun to play with those 200lb 20Mb drives, multiple terminals and console.. I was new then, after my VIC and Tandy I picked up a couple of IBM PCs and foolishly used the VAX console to stick my new PCs on. Now my systems and servers are absolutely crazy, but I would sure like to peek and poke a bit on these older systems. Who remembers pre-PC PASCAL? Anybody got one rotting in their barn?
