A friend has 2 Hal computer systems looking for a new home. One is a Beta machine and the other is a regular production. Both have been in storage for three years but both were running when put away. These are pickup in the lower silicon valley area.
For those that may not remember such things. Hal defined the 64 bit solaris processor specification, not Sun.

Slight correction - they didnt define the SPARC V9 specification, but they were the first to release a 64 bit SPARC chip based on the V9 spec (beat UltraSPARC I to market). Either way - interesting history!
