What interest in a

I love older machines and had to part with several SGI and HP systems in order to 'downsize' enough to fit in my apartment, so an HP-UX laptop is very desirable. 
Unfortunately, I don't have access to 80-BUS parts, so my offer would be for cash; I'll make my offer outside this forum.

I'm much less interested in a bidding war that most people would be. The 
computer is sitting on my shelf, it isn't being used, it just takes up 
space. I'm not a dealer in old computers, I don't rely on any profit to 
feed my family. I would prefer that this machine went to someone who 
would use it. Shipping to Canada would be CAN$64 

I would be far happier to swap it for 80-BUS parts than for cash.
