The MicroPDP11 was in more or less the same form factor as the MicroVAX 
I and II (also marketed as VaxStation I and II).  It was also known as 
something like the PDP 11/73.  A lower-end version was the Digital PRO 
350 and 360.

I don't know if any of these ran Unix or not, but you might look into 
them.  A few years ago, the PROs were really cheap and used about the 
same power as a PC from 1985.
