$,6000 – $9,000 a month would get you a pretty hot machine.
The three year lease on our nicely configured model 520 was $2,200. IBM maintenance including software was $600 per month.
I have a Classic Low Mileage 1990 9404 Model C-10 that I would give you a really good deal on. This baby has no body damage, and runs great for having only V2R3 under the hood. I will let you have it for next-to nothing, you pay shipping!
The clincher: Has RPG and and old version of Synon/2E.
But dead-ass slow.
We bought a used 515 in January for way less than that. I’d heard it was in the $20,000 range to purchase (not lease) – I wasn’t directly involved in the deal.
It handles our 10 to 50 users quite nicely.
