My local university surplus in Oklahoma has a P300 on sale for $20. It's in
decent but dusty condition, and one of the casters is borken. I'd buy it,
but I'm (still) short on cash, and I already have a big drum printer that
beats the P300 in cool factor. (It's not made by 'Data Products Corp.' but
instead by 'Data Printer Corp.').

They also have two NeXT laser printers, but they're priced at $50 each. I
think that's a little too high.
