The Tektronix 4081 is a graphics workstation with a 19" direct-view storage tube, powered by an Interdata 7/16 minicomputer.
Apparently, a Tektronix 4081 at Argonne National Laboratory played an important role in the early development of MATLAB in 1977/78 (see link).
Base price in 1976 was $27,000 ($146,000 in 2023 dollars).
