 PDP8S minicomputer  -    Information      more info       Wikipedia listing       
The S in the model name was put their because the CPU operated serially on the instructions and not parallel - this made the computer less costly but very very slow.  Some folks think the S was for slow or small - true but not why Digital Equipment Corporation put it in the name. Looks like only 3 or 4 in museums or private collections.
