                                   POLICIES
 
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Introduced in December, 1988, The Education Initiative (TEI) represents
Digital's commitment to the education market.  The program has and will
continue to evolve to meet changing needs.  The Education Initiative is a set
of partnership programs that are designed to help education institutions
achieve substantial cost savings by sharing computing management, support and
service responsibilties with Digital. 

Currently there are five programs within the Education Initiative which match
Digital's product and service strengths with the unique characteristics of the
education market to create exceptional cost control solutions.  For further
information regarding Digital's TEI programs please contact your local Digital
Sales Representative.
 
PROGRAM QUALIFICATION
In order to qualify for Digital Equipment Corporation's "The Educational
Initiative" (TEI) programs, when purchasing equipment and services, accepting a
grant of licensed software or purchasing from the TEI Desktop Price List, the
following conditions need to be met:
   
    The education institution shall qualify for the Education Initiative
    Program if the institution is nonprofit and is lawfully operating
    either as an accredited college or university; a vocational, technical
    or trade school; a state or local school system, or an independent
    primary or secondary school exclusively for nonprofit educational
    purposes.  The institution includes only those majority owned
    non-profit subsidiaries that provide education and/or research. 
    Majority owned is defined as greater than 50% ownership by the
    educational institution.

    With regard to health care entities, only teaching hospitals which are
    majority owned by a qualified educational institution qualify under
    TEI. Any/all other affiliated hospitals and/or other healthcare
    entities do not qualify for TEI pricing.  It is important to note that
    profit oriented entities (even those organized as not for profit),  eg.
    HMOs, physician group practices, etc. are not eligible for TEI.
   
    Only qualified education institutions in the United States may
    participate in the U.S. implementation of The Education Initiative
    Program.  Other Digital Equipment education market programs are
    available in certain countries outside the United States.         
 
PROGRAM RULES
Equipment purchased under the Program must remain with the qualified
educational institution or its majority owned subsidiary for its own use for a
period of not less than eighteen months.  Equipment may not be acquired under
The Education Initiative by an educational institution or its majority owned
subsidiary and "passed through", resold or distributed to a third party prior
to the end of the eighteen month period.
   
The qualified educational institution or its qualified majority owned
subsidiary may lease for its own use.

A similar configuration from sun was priced for about $19K for the system (150Mhz sparcstation, Ross cpu, 32MB, ~400MB) with 20 inches display and $20K for the Leo (ZX) framebuffer. SGI was a bit more.

I was part of the on-campus "technical resources" that a university had to maintain as part of this program. Basically we were supposed to resolve 90+% of the calls that otherwise might have gone to DEC's Customer Support Center. Since the educational discounts were largely fixed, yeah, we got the full financial breakdown in this format.

Not so sure - note that Vish is quoting a 25MHz DECstation 5000/200 in that package - might be the most expensive configuration listed, but not the most expensive/fastest machine.

Sun only announced the SPARCserver 600MP line in September of 1991, were they even shipping MBus systems by February of '92? Let alone with Ross 150MHz HyperSPARCs... SPARCstation 10 wasn't announced until May of '92...

More than the prices have changed. If someone gave me an SGI/Sun/DEC system in 1991 I would have sold it and used the money to buy something useful. ;)

Barring that, target practice.

$25k could buy a nice set of wheels back then.

$57064 is $98000 now; that's a downpayment for a house.

If set = 2, then a couple.




Or a small to medium sized house.

In the X Windows Disaster chapter of the Unix Haters Manual Steve Strassmann said his HP 9000/835 with two 19-inch monitors and Turbo/SRX graphics cost $150,000, that would be circa-1991... :shock:

The odd part - the VAXstation 4000/60 appears to cost less than the 3100/76 in similar confing (8/0/greyscale) - yet is faster and doesn't have the 1.02 GB disk limit (under VMS, boot partition limit under UNIX) issue.

Wasn't the 3100/76 only available as a MicroVAX?
If so would explain the price difference.
As far as I can recall the only differences between VS and MV of the same model were VMS licencing (MV > users), Nameplate, video card (better in the VS) and a much bigger price tag for the MV?
It has been twenty years though!

The VAXstation 3100/76 was readily available - it's included in the pricelist above. I even think I have one in the other room.

I wouldn't begin to speculate about how DEC set their prices... :roll:

Correct on the difference between a MicroVAX and VAXstation, but a µVAX typically had no framebuffer of any kind present, not one that was "better in the VS." Unless you installed an OS & license without a windowing system on a VAXstation, you're using a serial console on an µVAX. In fact, it was not terribly uncommon for a while to find a big empty patch in a machine room that had previously housed a big VAX-11 or 8xxx, with one of these latter-day desktop µVAXen on a typing table next to an DECwriter III printing serial terminal...

Not sure why I wrote "better in the VS" as rereading it I realized I had made a mistake :)

Did the 3100/9X ever come in a VAXstation configuration?

Back in '97 I supported one (MV 3100/95) that served 50+ users at a Food Companies HQ in Victoria BC (anybody local will know which one), they were all complaining the VAX 'thing' was slow and I was told to 'speed it up'... can't recall now what I did, but it didn't work ;)

heck just found; http://www.people.vcu.edu/~agnew/MVAX/MVAX_FAQ.HTML

I wrote that back in '94 originally.... twenty years ago!
