The Baby/400 product, if I recall correctly, has a <$600 run time and about $3k 
development license.  I don't recall the details on a single machine license as 
opposed to a NT
server network environment.  But I guess you could turn your PC (that you are 
going to have -anyway-) into a development box for about 1/3 the cost of buying 
a 150.  (Now if you
could get a 5 year lease on it, like a 150, that would be real sweet!)

I have not used the product but did have a chance to use their Baby/36 in a 
single machine configuration and it worked very well.

Moving code from Baby/36 to a 5363 did have a minor CR/LF problem, but hey that 
was 15 years ago.  And it didn't kill us.

BTW, I do not sell nor receive consideration from California Software
