old 64-bit comps?


I'm interested in purchasing an old 64 bit computer. (DEC multia etc.) Anybody know of someplace to get something like that for about $30? Thanks.

NOTE:I've checked ebay. Also could you list the name of the computer suggested?

DEC Alphas were/are 64-bit machines. Whether or not you can find one for less than $50 seems pretty optimistic though. As for where to find them, Ebay and any other computer hardware-related classifieds would be logical places to search. Good luck with it -- J.W.
