   Doubtful.  I've gotten *amazing* deals from Boris over the past 
fifteen years or so.  Like last summer...the loaded E3500 for $500, 
along with the Phaser 740 with full toner cartridges for something like 
$200, and the RS/6000 model 397 with two 100baseT interfaces and 256MB 
of RAM for $50.

   If Boris is charging you high prices, you've done something to piss 
him off.
