When you do, let me know. I'll pay good money for 10s and 20s...

Well specced? Any more going? I'd pay 2500 for a fairly loaded one.

Yup. It would cost less than that to buy one in the US, pay the
40% import duty and the shipping.

There are often some good deals on Ebay, but quite often they won't
ship outside the US, or there's a big monitor in the bundle which
would cost too much to ship.

Another point: is there a table anywhere of which MBus modules can
go in which machines?
