Are you sure it's not because your aging body parts are worth less?

On a serious note, when was the last time Sun made a "new" system with 13W3 
video out only? For the last few model years I'm aware of, the systems I've 
seen have had either DVI or SVGA connectors...

I haven't seen a Sun tube in surplus that was less than 8 years old...

(the ones in my basement are all over 10 Years old - if you're near Trenton, 
NJ feel free to stop by and rescue a few ;^)
