Well, a disk sled is between $10-30 (based on urgency, where you look,
etc.), and a framebuffer is pretty affordable too.

Now that you know what it is, take a look at eBay and see what you can
get for the same money... You could easily spend $100 making this a
"complete" U1-170e (adding framebuffer, disk (or two), and
keyboard/mouse if needed).

At $100, it gets hard to be pleased with that "deal".

I could send you a similar system (U1-170e, disk, creator framebuffer,
and CD-ROM) for $100, and you wouldn't have to search for the bits...

Unless searching for the bits is what makes it fun for you ;^)
