I came this close (holding fingertips together) to buying an
R100 at about 1983(?) when I was taking an Assembler class on
one. By semesters end the price came down a bit but I think
it was still well over 2000. While thinking it over (<2 weeks)
the news came that it was discontinued and I wimped.

Too bad; I didn't notice many replies to this question!

P.S. I use a "Microsoft Home" mousepad as a sunlight phosphor
      saver on my VT320. Oh, the irony.
