I have two LaserWriter II 's sitting comfortably in my storage unit here. Both work as new (although both could probably use new toner cartridges), but are so heavy that shipping would likely be prohibitively expensive.
I bought them 10 years ago for $20 each at Arizona State University Surplus...they work great with older Apple products that use AppleScript--such as the Newton.
