Systems that match your business and your budget

Whether your business is small or large, there's a MicroVAX system for you. You
can enter the world of VAX computing with the most affordable Model 40,
offering a low-risk, high-return investment. When your business grows, you can
upgrade to a higher-performing Model 85 for applications that demand higher
processing power. And, for maximum performance and expandability, where
applications require processing speeds up to 200 transactions per second, the
Model 96 is the right choice.

This flexibility, coupled with a three-year warranty providing next-day
response, gives businesses the investment protection their applications
demand.
