Greeting,

A Point 4 is a mini computer from the late 1970s. They were Data General clones. The parent company is Point 4 Data which is still around but the old stuff has been lost to the trash heap. There were two versions a Mark 6 and a Mark 12. I work on them for 15+ years building medical laboratories that enter connected the various machines. If you stumble over a computer board marked Point 4 let me know I want to make a wall hanging out of it.

Shadow,

Thanks for contributing here, and thank you for contacting me by email. It seems that my post on this forum is about tapes that relate to an earlier version of the Point 4 family of machines.

Could you post any pictures here of what these machines, and in particular, the boards that you are searching for look like? I think that would be very helpful.
