On the open market?  Probably not.  To a dealer?  Maybe.

The reason why RS/6000 and pSeries hold their value on the open market 
so much better than iSeries and AS/400 is that so many more people know 
RS/6000 than AS/400.  The stupid part is that pSeries machines command a 
price premium over equally powerful iSeries machines *which are capable 
of running AIX*.

Peace...  Sridhar
