At work we have a number of 7043-140's (okay, the "beige" ones for you 
non-IBMers) that we're going to be getting rid of.  These are generally 
332Mhz 604e's with 256MB and 4GB.  All have graphics adapters, but models 
vary.  Most have a P200 tube to go with them.

Right now, they're trying to make a deal with someone who may give them 
$100-150 for the each set of CPU & tube.  Would anyone here be interested in 
these?  How does that price work out for the average hobbyist?

(We have nearly two dozen 7043-150's with 256MB (some 512MB), some 4GB, some 
9GB, all with 3000's, but these are currently being held on to for a while.  
Eventually, I presume, they'll be up for removal.)

If there's any interest in the 140's, I can mention it to management.  I've 
already made the suggestion of eBay and they seem interested.
