That's awfully high on both RAM and the drive, and I mean regardless of
the quality level.

Of course, I remember back when DEC sold Seagate drives at around 4
times their retail cost just because they were wrapped in $2 worth of
plastic with a $5 interface board..

I wish cars were like that... since I can't ever get one of those new
either... :)

Of course, if you can afford to buy things new, it does suck to see them
drop in value like that.

At the rate computers fall in value, you would think that people would
plan their use a little better...
