The Alpha servers go pretty cheap. It's really just the workstation that
go for crazy money. There are companies still supporting them in the
field that buy them all up on ebay for big money. Some of the later
Alphastations can fetch well over $1,000.
You can always run 7.3 on Vax Simh. Simh is actually a lot of fun to
play with. It can be a Vax one second and a PDP-11 the next.
