Yes... if you can snag it for $10, and small profit is worth you time,
then by all means, do it.

And if it works and/or is relatively complete, let me know... I'll buy it
from you.

My overall point before wasn't that you should NOT buy one, just that you
should not pay a high price expecting that you will get an even higher
price for it later... but if you can get it cheap (like $10), you can be
assured you will get some kind of profit on it. There is nothing wrong
with making a profit on things... I just didn't want you to get burned
thinking that the MacTV was going to get Lisa 1 like prices, and so you
ran out and paid $100 for one expecting to resell it for $1,000.
