I contacted him about buying a few of his computers, he said he wants to sell
them all at once. He also said that he had a buyer but the deal fell

i don't know too much about the older computers he has, as most of you know,
but i think you will all agree that about $25k is a bit much.

Anyone know what the blue Intel computer is?
