Tektronix 2200 series are now going for reasonably low prices, and are light
enough to be considered portable.

HP 1740 and 1741 (storage version of 1740 IIRC) if you don't need a portable
unit. One would class these as luggable, as they are quite heavy, although
reasonable for size, but are quite deep (front to back) to put on a work
bench. Better if you have a scope trolley for them. There was also a logic
analyser add-on for available for these if the scope has the appropriate
option. Not a wonderful analyser, but better then nothing.

If you wanted an analyser though, I'd go for a HP 1650B series analyser.
Speaking of the HP analysers, a lot of them seem to be selling on ebay
sans-probes. Hypothetically, if I managed to make a probe/cable kit for the
1650B series that was similar in performance to the HP cable, but about $350
cheaper than Agilent's list price ($495 iirc), would anyone buy one? More to
the point, would anyone have any use for one?
I was also thinking about building some interface modules - 6502 CPU, 8085
CPU, 8008 CPU, PIC 40-pin and so forth. Plug the analyser into one side, plug
your PIC into the top, then plug the module into the target.

Later.

I can't commit to one now, but it does seem like a worthy cause. Keep us posted!
