Sadly, excluding the last latest fully socketed boards, there’s not much ebay value in these. Just about every large flea market in the country will have one or two of these units. They are popular as emulation machines because they can run NT and CP/M. Coupled with a custom memory controller I’ve seen these cobbled together as 8-16 GIGABYTE units using modern ram and register hacks. The units appear to run in the $20-$50 range on ebay and less elsewhere.
What makes that single board so valuable is it’s totally modular. Everything on the board is on a socket and it’s easily modified. Programmers (the physical units) are under $100, EPROMs are 10 for a dollar. and places like gethub and SourceForge are FULL of custom code you can install. One-click download and write. The BUS architecture is open source now so people can literally turn that board into any CISC architecture computer they want.
They make popular knock-off Motorola Macs and Amiga clones. All via software and firmware hacks. Lol.
I know it’s kind of geeky but...
if you do come across one of those boards you will just ‘know’ Instantly. They look so different from anything else.

-- my grades are my own and do not represent an offer from boardsort, nor are they guaranteed. Please keep that in mind.
