Speaking of 44Ps: A local surplus operation just scrapped around 10
44P-270s. I visit on a bi-monthly basis (used to be twice daily!) and on
my latest visit they were loading them in the scrap truck. Fully loaded
all of them, but I was told they had been sitting out in the rain for
weeks. This place has no understanding of anything but Windows machines
and sells at a rate of $5-10 per machine unless it says 'Dell'. Since
this place supports a major state university, I made an absolute killing
for a number of years.
I was quite sad, not least of all because of how much money I could have
made if I had caught them when they came in.
