To calm down the war before it even starts, I must say that some of these
collector types have been very helpful to the hacker community.  For
example, the guy who sold his VIC-1001 and MAX on ebay (I don't know how
much he got for them) is now actively taking part in a project of
documenting the 9060 and 9090 hard drives.

I must also say that although I like to collect computers, I don't want to
spend much money on them.  I got my first PET class computer (a 8032-SK)  
in late 1998 for 20 Finnish marks (that's less than 3.50 EUR or USD),
and I haven't paid _anything_ for the PET and PET-II equipment I've
received since.
