A few weeks ago, I turned down an offer to get an IMSAI and Altair
system, reasonably intact, both for $500. What do I know. :-)
Looks like a market ripe for wheeling and dealing.

These online auctions are an interesting phenomenon. At first I thought
they'd be a great place to pick up contemporary and antique computer
stuff at good prices, perhaps with a few "sleeper" bargains. But the
info flow is too good; it's my impression that prices are consistently
driven *higher* than I'd regard as "street" price. Good news for
people running auction services that take a percentage.
