I agree that at the price you stated *i* would buy it, but to rebuild it
from parts at average prices would exceed $200 (notice I put *no*
value on the LX chassis, just the bits that fill it up).
In parts, your price works out to $20/16 Meg SIMM, and the rest is
free... Without alot of VC funding I can't swing that sort of pricing!
I am not arguing your valuation, I am proposing an *alternative*
Look at it anouther way - can I sell 16 Meg 72 Pin parity simms
for $35/each? A 1 Gig SCSI HD for $25? A VSIMM for an LX
at $15? A keyboard/mouse for Sun equipment for $25?
How is it when I put those pieces together in an LX chassis the value
goes down 50%?
Thank you for your input,
