My Apollo DN5500 cost almost $250 to ship from CA to WA. Found that out
the hard way, and will never make the same mistake again. UPS wouldn't
even deliver it, I had to go get it from the regional distribution centre.

The machine was barely worth the $100 I offered for it, adding on $250 for
shipping really sort of soured me on the whole deal.

The machine is pretty much just a standard AT-sized box, although it's a
bit heavier due to sturdier construction. The 19" colour monitor weighs
about 120 pounds. (and doesn't even give a good picture!)
