For what is there it seems to me that this is a reasonable price. Even 
though it's
being sold "as-is" it appears relatively unmolested.  I don't expect 
that it would be
all that difficult to get running (the tape drive is a different 
matter...but the problem
with them is generally understood and just "work").
