Wow.  Reading the text description is worth it.

"We have over 500 new and legacy Tadpole, RDI, General Dynamics, SAIC, 
NatureTech and other UNIX systems in stock at any given time.  I also 
offer repairs, extended warranties, parts, etc.  However, just to be 
upfront and save us all some time, none of this is cheap.  Repairs start 
at $500 including battery rebuilds.  Extended warranties start at 
$1,500/year per system."

This guy must have a handful of legacy customers and is hoping to extend 
his reach with Ebay.

(If I were him, I would start the minimum bid lower and try and use Ebay 
for lead generation for support contracts... can you still see bidders
