    We used an 11/750 with the Fuji Eagle and a CDC Hawk and, of course, the Cipher streamer for backup. We also had two large MPI line printers and probably 15 (I don't recall the exact number) C Itoh...

    If you've got Win32, there's still Ghostscript--I've used that for a long time on both DOS/Win and Linux.

    Virtualbox runs NT just fine--it emulates the needed peripherals. Heck, I ran early Microsoft Xenix on it and still run Win98 when the need arises.

    But again, the problem is that we don't have...

    You're forgetting the 11/730. When Sorcim got sold, I was offered their 730 system for haul-away. I declined.

    The 750 was what, about half the speed of a 780 for less than half the price? It's...

    If you're going to go for an APi, it seems to me that you might as well run the original software on it as well, no?

    Again, we don't have enough information.

    How old is "old"? And what software is running on the old system? There's always TCP/IP printing if the system is network-connected. Wifi print servers are easy.

    You just need some planning. On Monday, I drove home with a 25U rack in the back of a Prius. I had about 4 inches to spare.

    When CGA was a new thing, I couldn't stand the look of alpha mode on it. I opted for MDA right off the bat, even though I had a spare color monitor. Note also, that the people who redid the 5150...
