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*.
