Ask :). My IBM 5100 (Basic only) was given to me because I asked.
Shortly after that, I found out what they were going for (about $500)
and told her she could have it back if she wanted. She told me to keep
it! She asked about a year later if I had sold it and I told her no, and
I still have it along with the external tape drive and printer.
