Depends on the micro.

While IMHO it's true that Apple ]['s, PET's, TRS-80, etc are not exactly
hard to find, there are some rather rare machines, like the Tandy Deluxe CoCo
(something like 2 exist), a prototype Acorn that I can't remember the name of
(M4???), the HH tiger (Prototype only), etc that are somewhat hard to find.
It's quite possible that the next one of those that you see is the last!
