AUD $25,000 for a Linotype L100 PostScript imagesetter (used).

Has a 68K computer inside it with Adobe ROMs. Communication via serial 
or AppleTalk.

One of the first high resolution PostScript imagesetters. Put a lot of 
feet of bromide paper through it.

The machine itself is actually available in Sydney NSW Australia for 
anyone who would like to preserve it.
