I purchased this machine from someone in Auckland along with another AlphaStation 200 (Saturn) and an AlphaServer 800 (Mars). It has the following installed:

This machine arrived in good condition but its case was locked and was missing its key. This required the removal of the case lock in order to gain access to the inside. More details can be found on the AlphaStation 200 page. This is the better-configured of the two AlphaStation 200s (more RAM, larger hard disk, faster CD-ROM drive). Its front reset button is configured as a halt button and its speaker is connected to the motherboard instead of the soundcard.

Currently this machine is being used to test OpenVMS networking. Once this has completed it will likely be moved to Tru64 UNIX 5.1B-4.

Below is the configuration of the machine as it currently is.
