I'm just curious what would be the newest piece of DEC equipment that you would consider vintage?

Anything PDP and Vax is definitely vintage.

The same that applies to PC's and PC compatibles should apply to the DEC machines with Intel processors.

Alpha machines may not be vintage but are certainly collectible.

Early Microvax sure. The final Microvaxen might be pushing it with the last shipments being in 2000.

Wow. I didn't realize the MicroVax was in production that long. I think eventually even the later ones will be worth collecting.

Sure once ebay prices drop a bit. I have a 3100/85, what do you guys think it is worth?

Since 32-bit machines are still in use today, my nomination would be for the MicroPDP-11/93 as this uses the final non-32bit processor on a 22-bit Qbus.
