Speaking of new prices of this old gear we like to play with, does
anyone happen to know how much a Sparcbook 3GX was when new?  Somewhere
around the cost of a small car, I guess, but all I remember from back
then was that I couldn't even dream of buying one on my own.

Which is why I have the above mentioned Sparcbook now. =)
