    How much would you pay for SunUltra1Creator

    I'm thinking about getting one and this guy wants 120 bucks.

    Looks like it's either 167MHz or 200 MHz 64 bit CPU. Do you guys think it's a fair price or come across any price reference on that one?

    TIA.

    What else is included? What kind of stuff do you want to use it for? If it's just the CPU then don't do it...too expensive. But if he's throwing in a complete system and you're interested in taking advantage of the 64-bit stuff, then it may be a better deal.

    Oh no no .. it's the complete system.

    Sorry that I forgot to mention it.

    I have no idea what kind of CPU it has. Depending on specific model, it has either 64 bit 167 MHz or 143 MHz. I can't find the note I took when I was there so I will need to go there again to get specific model.

    It has CDROM but no idea what speed.

    It has at least 128 MB of DIMM or 256 MB. I can't really but it looks more than 64 MB. 4 DIMMs and each have 9 chips double sided.

    Two SCSI drives. Fujitsu drives and I think it as 2.1 GB each.

    10 MB network card on board.

    No monitor, keyboard nor mouse. I will have to look for those later.

    I just want to see what advantage I will get from running 64 bit computing. I've never able to afford Sun boxes so I would at least like to get familiar with them. If I'm ever going to spend a couple grands on computers, I would rather spend on Sun than Apple.

    Thanks.

    The best I found for a Sparc based system was $200 before shipping. That included the monitor, keyboard, mouse and modem. But shipping from FL, CA, NM, AZ ... wayyyy too much.

    Not a bad deal at all. I myself would take it, but that's me.
