I repaired a Spectrometer for Morgan University in Baltimore that had a
vintage computer at its heart, used for training purposes and perfectly
good. The computer just needed some TLC to get it back up and running. I
think it was a P-II as well, there was a control card that would only work
with the pre-PCI bus

Being a photographer, I know there is a real
market for this. Many
high-end scanners will only work with older Macintosh or
I have a scanner that originally cost $10,000, and the only software for it
runs on Windows XP (thankfully I can use Parallels Desktop to run XP and
use it). Other, even more expensive scanners require even older software
that requires physical systems. I also have some pretty high-end Macintosh
A/V HW & SW that won?t run on newer systems.
I?m sure there is plenty of lab type equipment in this category as well.
