Unfortunately, it's probably not even worth $49, unless you specifically want, say, the box it comes in as a very heavy drinks cabinet.

Computationally, it's way outclassed by modern desktop PCs, it runs a severely out-of-date version of HP-UX that probably hasn't been upgraded since 2001, and it sucks so much power that it needs multiple mains leads. You'll also be stuck with 1995-class expansion cards, memory and disks, as well as a delightful fifteen minute boot-up with any reasonable amount of RAM.

But don't let me put you off buying it if you feel nostalgic. :-)
