I forgot to list the VT180, otherwise known as a ROBIN.
It is VT100 manufactured to have a Z80 processor in it, and it will run
Not well known, but the original VT100 could take a card cage and hold a
small computer inside. IIRC: There was also a PDP-11 variant, and

I can not take credit for the first to post their age in hex. Another
person did that on the comp.os.vms newsgroup, and also stated the first
year that they worked in computers in hex. It made an interesting number.
One person missed the joke entirely of course, even though the correct
radix prefixes for the platform covered by that newsgroup was specified.
