Ebay they sell for around $480 (Or did last time I was looking.) Maybe cheaper since its a version older then the one I was looking at.

But remember that those are basically 4 computers with 2 cpus each instead of a single machine with 8 cpus.

Did you do the economical calculation on the bitcoin mining versus the electricity and price of the machine in question? Maybe the result is not very optimistic and in fact it might be negative?

Then the machine will have zero use and sub zero value.

I'm not using this for bitcoin mining, that would be beyond stupid.
I am using it for mining cpu only coins. For example, YAC, YBC, and XPM were all cpu only when they came out. Having a box handy to fire up at launch of new coins will be especially handy. The more I can throw at a coin at launch the better. I've made $1000s in the first few hours of new coins utilizing Amazon servers.

The price I found these units for was $600. I guess thats not such a good deal after all if they are cheaper on ebay.
