Does anybody know where I can buy second hand sun workstations in the UK at a reasonable price.  I am looking for something like a Sparc5 or Sparc20.

www.lycos.co.uk - search for "used sun"!

Actually, I've used Summit (www.summit-tech.co.uk) in the past & found them very helpful as well as reasonably priced

I have seen this site before, but I couldn't find any secondhand kit on it...

If it is second hand then £950 for a second hand low spec sparc5 seems pretty steep to me.

I am only looking for the base system, I don't need a monitor.

Thanks anyway, and sorry for rejecting your answer :(

OK then, try www.exquip.com (Tel 0121 765 5151). They sell used Sun kit, but I can't tell from their ad. in Computer Weekly whether their Sparc 5/70 for £500 is for a system or just the base unit.

It would be worth phoning Summit anyway (0114 267 0999) to check their prices and what they would charge for what you need.

Good luck!
