It really depends on what a person wants from all of it though and where they
are as far as shipping. I've shipped heavy TRS-80 model 4's to SanFrancisco
and the recipient seemed happy to pay the shipping. Of course UPS (pronounced
"oops") damaged the unit and made it unusable. They also got to pay the
damages as far as I know.

You're right about the open market resale though. The average person won't
mess with one for more than $10 at thrift or consignment stores. Again, it's
all in what a prospective buyer wants in it.
