machines around, but then size, power and cooling become prohibitive.
It's quite large.
The CPU/Memory/IO Controller is a double-wide 27" 6' rack. The DASD
controller and array probably won't come to be exhibited because the
disk array weighs something in the neighborhood of the 6000lb and burns
more than 10kW. The tape drive is a 27" 7' rack. The lineprinter isn't
all that big. I probably don't need to bring a terminal server down.
So, all told, roughly floor space for three 27" racks and a table.
Weight of roughly 4000lb. Less than 5kW power, in all likelyhood.
