I scored the Ultra-60 w 512MB RAM, 18G drive, 21" true flat monitor, cdrom,
kb, mouse, and Solaris 7 for $4200 with the shipping in June 2000.... I was
pretty ecstatic at the time....

Not sure what it is "worth" now... half that ?  

Back then I wish I had had the money and resources to buy a bunch at that
price.... (although part of the agreement is that I theoretically could not
sell the unit for 6 months ... even 6 months later it was still worth more
than $4200).

I think I lucked out... why they sold it when it didn't meet reserve I don't
know... but I didn't ask :-)

Of course now I could use the $4200 .... ah well, times change..
