I have an old book regarding computers, "The Social Impact of Computers", circa 1977. In it there is the following description and photo:

Hewlett-Packard 3000. The system shown is a small, general-purpose computer system, designed for concurrent multilanguage processing. It will handle local batch jobs and interactive terminals at the same time. The minimum system configuration consists of a CPU and console, one magnetic tape drive, and one magnetic disk drive. Other input/output devices can be added, including tape and disk drives, line printers, and terminals. The basic memory size is 64K, but it can be expanded to 128K. The system can be programmed in BASIC, FORTRAN, and COBOL and includes editing and sorting programs and a scientific library. Purchase price for the CPU is approximately $100,000 and additional peripheral equipment can add between $25,000 and $200,000 to the total cost of the system.
