本ハンドブック序文でGordon Bellは下記のように、LSI-11は、「伝統的産業の障壁を越えて、マイクロコンピュータのパッケージで、ミニコンの性能をユーザーに提供するものである」と書いている。
The LSI-11 (PDP11/03) is the smallest member of the PDP-11 family of computer systems. It offers the user minicomputer performance in a microcomputer package that crosses traditional industry barriers. Therefore, the user can truly add computer power in systems previously too small for computer application. Yet for our traditional user, the boxed version of the LSI-11, the PDP11/03, offers a completely integrated smaller systems tool at lower cost without sacrificing performance. The LSI-11 (PDP11/03) maintains:traditional PDP-11 architectural compatibility. This includes programs up to 64K bytes and the use of the (optional) floating instruction set (FIS) and extended instructi・on set (EIS).
