We were thinking about auctioning off the original E450 that was the
SETI at home server as a fund raiser.  (Actually the original server is
an Ultra-10 sitting on my desk.  ellie aka jill nee sagan).
Unfortunately university rules don't allow departments or groups to
sell things and use the proceeds.  University salvage sells them and
the university gets the money. :(

But SETI at home isn't 10 years old yet... (sun gave us an old E450).

Even though it may be a collectible, it's not quite vintage.  Yet.
Things branded "Sun 4," I think would count, as would various
SPARCstations and Solbournes.   Has any 64-bit microprocessor been
declared officially vintage yet?
