Is three NXT intelligent bricks and 9 servo motors for $100 a good deal? I don't
have any of this stuff, and I can see the pricing here, but is this stuff like
old computers and not of much use?
Thanks,
Warren

It's not a bad deal. Some robotics academies, computer classes etc etc use
older stuff. They sometimes need spares or want to expand their classes, and
some teachers prefer to stick with what they have and what they know. It also
means that they do not have to change or adapt their whole curriculum, just because
LEGO released something new.

As far as I am aware, there are classes that are even using RCX stuff, at least
in Europe.

I would go for this deal in a heartbeat, but at the same time I can not promise
that you will be able to sell them fast.

Thank you, I appreciate the input!
