I've been looking for old desktops (486 through P3 era) at the l0cal scrapyards and thrift stores, but have not found any. The scrapyard had an entire pallet of old computers but they were not willing to let them go. (What a waste!)
A local computer shop has handful of them though. Apparently machine shops still buy them for the ISA slots.
There was a "Panavoice" 386SX desktop complete and a Pentium-133 complete tower, except for the hard drive (probably socket 5). There was also a Dell P3 tower and a few others that I did not open up. They were asking for $75 per machine. How much do you consider reasonable for a machine like this?
