Correction.  We need a 703, my bad the 707 has a built in modem.  The 703 is the RS232 version.  The 1200 baud version has a dual print head so it can keep up with the speed vs the 300 baud version with a single print head.  

We may use one of our dec writers, but it's rather large so we would have to find a space vs the TI Silent which is small.

If we can find one of the  smaller TI Silent terminals that goes that fast, we can hook it up to the PiDP so that we can have it run hands on demos and visitors can take the result with them.  It would be really cool for people to have a takeaway from the museum when they visit.
