Dunno - I spent some time on the MBUS FAQ (Thanks for hosting it

Well, to be honest, I put more money into, say, the SS/20 than I could
ever get out of it ($50 for the CPUs, who knows what I spent on the 8
Meg VSIMMs and Aux. Video card, slim CD and the 6x 64 Meg DIMMs) - I've
easily spent $125 on the box over time, and I think I'd be lucky to
find someone to give me $30 for the system, and then pay $10-15 to ship
it, since that is what U1s are going for. ;^)
