Ooh!   DECstation trivia!   Okay, here goes, in order of release:

PMAX	DECstation 3100
PMIN	DECstation 2100
3MAX	DECstation 5000/200
3MIN	DECstation 5000/1xx
MAXine	DECstation 5000/xx
3MAX+	DECstation 5000/240

Note that the PMIN and 3MAX came out pretty close to each other, as
did the 3MAX+ and MAXine, so I may have gotten the order wrong.   I
don't know the code name for the DECstation 5000/260, which was
produced after the original Workstation Systems Engineering group was
laid off.

Also, machines called DECsystem <whatever> were released.  The
difference between a DECsystem and a DECstation is that the DECstation
had a frame buffer console, whereas a DECsystem had a serial console.
As many of you are aware, a DECstation can be converted into a
DECsystem pretty easily, except for the name on the front panel.
