Sure. I've seen 486/33DX systems with 4MB of RAM and Windows 3.1 go for
around $275. So 386's don't sell for that... but still... and you could
sell high-end 486's for much more than that. Heck, AMD even made the X5, a
586 compatible processor for 486/DX4 motherboards that works at 133MHz.
Those go for around $500.

Yepper! I would beat up that one because of several things also
real nice to donate those to schools, etc and including me looking
for some parts to fix some other items. AS IS at that price? No
