I haven't seen that market trend (in fact, I've seen quite the
opposite), and I can't really say why it would make sense.  iSeries
systems cost substantially more to acquire, and they get even more
expensive as the performance is unlocked.  I would expect those costs to
filter down to the used market, too.

Perhaps the cheaper systems you see are the ones that are LIC-limited to
run i5/OS only, and at lower capacities?
