I have a SUN 3/160... but it's not very interesting.
However, what might make it interesting is that I have a pretty good collection of VME cards to go with it. Hang a few large cards around it that are populated by dozens of individual chips and components, and it might make an attractive display.
I also have an SGI Personal Iris, but again, not very interesting.
Regardless, both are available for long term loan if you want 'em -- but since the term "minicomputer" is not precisely defined (which is what sidetracked your original request), they might not be considered minicomputers by some.
