There are a lot of 8 proc O2100s on ebay currently.  Some have gone
really cheap ($2225), others have a higher bin, but the seller is
reportedly willing to negotiate cheaper prices.

That's a bit more expensive than a CPU, and I won't buy one till they
are much cheaper, but it does seem like a fair and reasonable price.

However, I don't know how happy the seller would be about shipping to

BTW, one list member recently put together a 16proc origin for well
under $3k.
