Now there's a two headed snake.
On one hand you can expect next to nothing for your old hardware on trade
in. I've kind of expected that for 0595's, etc.
On the other hand, if you dig used equipment, it should come cheap. Of
course, IDK what the rules are in transferring licenses to used equipment,
or trying to get a new license. And, to keep costs down, you're probably
going to have to consider your own maintenance. Otherwise expect to pay
through the nose because the maintenance companies are going to have to
charge through the nose for parts that are available on ebay for $30.
