Thanks from the following:

I was told to get an old vt220, a wyse-60 works with an a/b box, a dec vt420,
an old at&t, & a PC.
I don't have the real-estate for a PC or even the older vt220 (if I knew where
I could get one)... My vendor said dec has a terible service record & wouldn't
order me one (I decided to try a dec over a wyse). He said it was wyse or
nothing! I went with the wyse because I need it!
thanks for your help!!
