In my opinion, a used unit that has been thoroughly checked over is a much better value. $4500-6000 is the approximate range for these units depending on age, condition, and included accessories. Occasionally, used or as-is units come up for sale, but beware that many people try to sell their used units for the same cost as some dealers asking price for a refurbished (often with warranty) unit.

Mine is a 1981 model and operates like new.
