Of course not an investment at any mean - they are way to
obscure to gather value at any time (just compare it to the
Altair vs. more rare systems case).

Well, the NextGen is (was) a quite remarkable step. And for
PCs, I'm already starting to aquire some early Pentiums.
Dual P60 server systems _are_ already vanishing.

Anyway, what kind of Nx586 boards are offered ?
