Description: The PDP-1 computer system was used at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory to offload peripheral processing (like printing, for example) from more expensive mainframe computers. It also was used to support graphical I/O. Livermore ordered nearly one of every available option for the PDP-1, many of which weren't actually designed yet.
