www.dcginc.com often has stuff in this area. They currently have
a 600 MHz DU system for $6800, and at one point they had a pile of
AS200 workstations with DU licences for not much more than a thousand
dollars (!). They don't mention the AS200s on their web page, but
some other dealer might still have one or two around.
