I have the opportunity to acquire an 11403A with some errors. (I am optimistic about reparability)
I wonder why you are optimistic. I think it is very challenging to
repair the 11400 series.

My question is:

How useful is this beast, compared to my 2465B, when my main usage is repair and troubleshooting of amplifiers, other oscilloscopes, playing with Arduino etc.
The biggest weak spot is the 20MSPS maximum sample rate. The short
record length is not so great either.

Many people dislike the UI, but that's a matter of taste.
