The problem with fixing prices on older technology items is that it can vary
rampantly depending on buyer and seller timeframes and motivations.

I'll use for example, eBay.  There are many companies on eBay who specialize
in nothing more than raping you when for some oddball reason you should need
a PA-8000 processor for your HP J282.  And then there's people who just want
to get rid of their old HP J282 because they are tired of trying to find HVD
drives for a computer that can cook a mean T-bone to hot pink center
perfection, but can't run an open source SQL server as fast as a modern
Wal*Mart computer.

Of course, I have been acused before of comprimising computational
performance for massive size and electrical bills...
