I have seen 390's go under $50 on ebay, if that helps.

The 560 is pretty slow by any standard, so I would not pay much for it
anyway. IMHO.....

The 390s are nicer because they employ the POWER2 chipset, so it has some
nice FP balls (again, not too impressive by today's standards... but quite
usable). Int performance is abit lacking IMO. The 560 uses the
original POWER so it far slower than the 390.

AIX is the only OS that will run in them BTW.
