Oh, it doesn't have dual 300mhz, that *would* be an anomoly, only 170mhz
US-I's.  Monitor anysystem's auctions, U1s for $25-$50, U2s from $50->$120
(it is funny to look at their ended auctions, all of them are identical but
prices are very different, sometimes 3-4 times the amount, just proof that
an item is worth whatever someone is willing to pay. :)

> Oh, and as I said - my pricing was "I want it now" - meaning, you come to
work in the morning, and during the car ride you decide to upgrade your CPUs
at home. You log on to Ebay and those are the kinds of prices you should be
able to "buy it now"...

I got it.  Most BIN's are grossly overpriced, although in this case it is
not that bad.  (I usually set my BIN's to maybe 10-20 percent more than I
expect to get for the item and usually 50% of the time someone buys it) ;)
