It all depends on what the computer is...
$50/mo is what I would charge to rent a CBM 8032.
If I were renting my PDP-11/03, I would charge probably $250/mo,
provided I didn't have to transport the disk drives.
If I were renting a PDP-11/70, I would charge like $1000/mo.
None of those prices would include the shipping to/from, which I would
make them pay for as well.
Basically the bigger the computer and the harder it is to transport,
the more you should charge them. Also figure in the rarity factor in
case it dies while in their hands and it has to be repaired/replaced.
