I am interested in acquiring and preserving these older HP computers and
associated peripherals, manuals and other documentation.
If you have any of this equipment or know where to find it, please send me an e-mail.
The HP 300 business computer was introduced in 1979.
The following announcement appeared in the January 1979 issue of
IEEE Spectrum magazine.
The HP-300 is one of two business computers introduced by this manufacturer. Occupying no more space than a free-standing data terminal, the computer is designed to simplify the development and control of dedicated on-line business applications. It can support as many as 16 terminals for processing business transactions. Prices begin at $36,500.
The second computer, the Series 33, is the first LSI version of the HP-3000 product line. It employs the same operating software (MPE III) as the HP-3000 Series II and II. Prices start at $70,000.
Both products use silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) LSI semiconductor chips, which contribute to smaller size and reduced costs.
