I have a client that used to buy the old portable 400's on ebay.  
When one would break and he'd strip for spare parts.....you 
never know who has a model just like yours and would like to just
load and go.

Hey, man....  my nephew has been wanting to learn about what I do for
a living for awhile now.  If it's somewhere near Ohio I'll haul it off
for you because it'd be worth it for the little bit of playing he
might do.

For anything else..... maybe a computer museum?  Sell it for scrap?
That's probably about the best way to get five hundred out of it....
=)

$500?!?!? <guffaw> Shane, think of your 9402 like anyone in a garage
sale
would look at an old 386-compatible PC; it generates a snicker and
they move
on.

Scrap metal.  You deliver.  Won't get you $500 though.  How 'bout the
always
revered boat anchor?

If it helps you understand a little better, FIVE years ago I worked
for a
company that was using a forklift to drop these in the dumpster.  (No,
not
environmentally friendly people.)

Trying to remember the size of the 9402.  Esteemed lister Larry
Bolhuis,
IIRC, has turned old cabinets into beer tap coolers.  Interesting
conversation piece.

I like Steve's suggestion although I'd be hard pressed to believe any
charity would even be interested in a v3r2 box.

You could try putting it on eBay, start it at $1, set a reserve to
your
preference, remember to state shipping is responsibility of buyer,
blah,
blah, blah.  I would be surprised if you got any bids on it.

Getting the hint yet?  <g>
