These images were taken from a September 1976 HP Sales Brochure I still have. I used several HP2000's at the Cincinnati Board of Education (both as a student, and then as an employee). Ahhh Time Share Basic. Those were the days that if you wanted to find out how the editor worked (or anything for that matter!), you just listed the code! I vividly remember toggling in the bootstrap loader, inserting the paper tape and hoped that the system would come up (I can almost feel those toggle switches and buttons now).
I'm not sure if any of these beasts are still alive today, but they sure were a great machine to start on!
