Fine, I have to disagree with this sorting a bit.

Not cheap, unless you find someone who hasn't discovered ebay yet.

Maybe harder to find, but also relatively cheap if you do. The last two
that I got from ebay were $60 (three years ago) and $200 (this year),
respectively. I haven't seen ANY -8 go for less than about $1500, and
any Unibus-11 is going to be well over $200, with toggles, probably no
less than $800 for a /5 or /10, or $1k+ for anything that has an MMU
Though, I know there's at least one person on the list (though not
geographically near you) who has 11/780s that they told me that they
want to part with. I don't want to post who, just in case. :)
