FWIW, there are tech equipment remarketers all over the place. They
usually take back older equipment from large companies, hospitals, etc
then refurbish and resell what they can. Often they get paid to take it
all away, then paid again if they can resell the goods. One local to
Houston, where I am located, told me that he basically prices out older
PCs at $0.10/MHz. Thus an 800 MHz P3 goes for around $80 in running
shape.

For my money I still prefer Soekris or WRAP hardware for production
monowall systems. The small form factor and zero moving parts are big
features.
