I don't really have a contact. I'm just a student with an unusual
hobby. I was bored on a weekday and I called their sales line for
kicks. The bored sales guy and I chatted for a while. He suggested the
broker / scrap dealer solution himself. Something tells me that this is
not high on Tadpole's priorities.
Furthermore, any SparcBook or RDI PrecisionBook counts for a substantial
trade-in discount on new products. Especially the PrecisionBooks;
apparently they still sell/support them, and there's a substantial list
of people waiting to get them. Apparently this is the rationale for
relatively high prices on ebay.
Too bad, though. I'd love to have a sparcbook w/ SunOS 4.x, just for
the novelty value.
