You just need to polish up your social engineering skills. ;-)

I got a Prime 2455 for shipping costs only; the owner wanted...

        ...drum roll, please...

ten thousand american dollars for this wonderful little machine.

The process did entail one $25 phone call to Arizona, and a few
shorter/cheaper ones, listening to his anxiety over marrying off
the first of his daughters (late, at age 29), and such. But it
paid off.
