There are certainly plenty of used, refurbed, off-lease or just plain  
stolen (grin) machines on the market.

I saw some "refurbed" CPUs the other day, though I am not sure  
exactly how you would go about "refurbing" a chip (straighten the  
bent pins ?)

But I have no desire to deal with "users", my family members and  
friends are enough headaches.

Trying to stay somewhat on-topic, I think a lot of the refurbed  
machines on the market for around $100 would work as SD frontends for  
Myth, but so would X-Boxes, MediaMVPs and even some PDAs.
