As EBay is the closest thing we have to an "open" market on VAX systems, I tend to watch it to see what folks are paying for VAX Systems. The numbers are interesting, although sometimes skewed when a dealer gets a call for a specific type of system. For example, there was a period of time when one re-seller had a contract for several VAX 4000/200 systems in the BA215 cabinet. During that time you couldn't get a BA215 on Ebay, even if you saw it, for less than $350, yet one sold for $250 (8/21) and I've seen them go for a bit less than that. All in the timing.
