What could you possibly do with such a machine....other than use it as file storage or to control an in-home network.

If you offer $40, you'll probably end up settling at $45 unless he's (A) a sucker or (B) rigid at $50. Lowball him. Say $30. Makes your chances much better to settle at $40. But, all in all, I'd probably drop $50 on that system. Then again, I'm a collector. I've got 23 rigs of varying performance/use. Some of which don't perform at all and aren't used
