Symbolics products price list (August 2007)
(Price list obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org on 8/15/07)
Thank you for your request for information about Symbolics and our products. Our Open Genera software for HP/Compaq/DEC Alpha workstations running Tru64 Unix costs $5,000 for a single CPU license. There is an academic discount for students and teachers that brings the price down to $999. You should have a 300 mHz or greater Alpha workstation with at least 500 MB RAM, 4 MB cache and 1 GB of available disk space. Besides selling Open Genera and maintaining the installed base of Symbolics machines, we also sell refurbished Symbolics hardware. There is no hardcopy documentation, but there is complete documentation available on the hard disk of each system.
The top of the line Symbolics machine is the XL1200 (speed factor 6). It is a deskside machine (9 x 25 x 32) that runs off standard 120V power. It comes with 8 MWords (40 MB) of memory, a 9 GB SCSI disk with all Symbolics software and most sources pre-loaded, a CD-ROM drive and a 19" monochrome console with keyboard and 3-button mouse. The cost for this system is $3,500. Shipping can be expensive.
We have one NXP1000 (speed factor 6) available. This is a network appliance that serves Genera to an X-windows terminal. This machine has 8 MWords of memory and an 18GB SCSI with all Symbolics software and most sources pre-loaded. The cost for this system is $3,900.
We also offer a MacIvory model 3 workstation (speed factor 6). This is a Quadra 650 with 40 MB of RAM, a 4 GB SCSI disk, CD drive, built-in ethernet and video, Apple extended keyboard and a one-button mouse. It includes a MacIvory model 3 co-processor board and 8 MWords of memory on the MacIvory. The disk has Mac O/S 7.6, all Symbolics software and most sources pre-loaded on it. The cost for this unit is $3,200. An adapter to allow the Quadra to connect to standard VGA monitors is included. You will have to provide a monitor with at least 1024 x 768 resolution.
As a lower cost option you can get the same workstation configuration with a MacIvory model 2 co-processor (speed factor 2) and 8 MB (1.3 MWord) of NuBus memory for the MacIvory for $1,200.
If you already have a Mac IIfx or a Quadra 650 or 950 to put the MacIvory in you can get just the MacIvory model 3 co-processor board for $2,900 or the model 2 for $900. You can also buy the 4 GB SCSI disk with all the software pre-loaded for $95, otherwise you will have to load all the Symbolics software yourself from the CDs.
If you really want a collector's item, we have a number of different 36xx machines (speed factor 1) ranging in weight up to 400 pounds that we will sell starting at $675. The smallest of these machines is the 3620, which is a deskside machine (9 x 18 x 25) that runs off standard 120V power and weighs about 70 pounds, not including the monitor. The standard cofiguration is 4 MWords with a 760 MB of ESDI disk and a 17" monochrome console with keyboard and 3-button mouse. You can add another 760 MB disk for an additional $150. You can add additional memory for $50 per MWord up to a total of 8 MWords. You can upgrade to the 19" premium monochrome monitor for an additional $300. The major problem with all of these machines is disks. They do not have a SCSI bus and use very old ESDI, SMD or ST506 disks. The most disk space you can get on one of them is 1.5 GB, which barely makes for a useable environment once you load all the software and documentation files. Another option would be a 3650, which is the size of a large 2 drawer file cabinet and can hold more memory and disk.. Pricing for the 3650 is the same as the 3620. This would only be a viable option, if you live close enough to Washington, DC to pickup the machine.
We provide a 90 day Return-To-Factory warranty on all equipment we sell. You are responsible for all shipping costs and there is a $50 crating fee for the XL1200 and 36xx machines, unless you pick up the machine from our location in Burke, VA. Payment is required in advance. We can accept credit card payments through the Payment Pal system with a 3% surcharge (4% for international).
