Sure. We'll sell to pretty much anybody, from a garage hobbyist, to a global corporation.
We've got a pretty sizeable warehouse full of previous-gen (and current gen) goodies, which is why I can throw together a test rig on very short notice, and for comparatively little cost. I think our sales and purchasing guys can track down REALLY old stuff, if you've got some ancient Sun gear you need to keep running.
Disclaimer: I work for them, but I'm not an official company spokesperson. All of this rambling is purely my own views and opinions.
I work for an IT hardware reseller (mostly; we do some new stuff too), so scrounging up some lab boxes or test beds usually isn't a problem. I've got one in our rack right now that I fire up to mess with VMs via Hyper-V, rather than adding a bunch of extra load to our ESX cluster. And we mostly deal with smaller development projects, not spending months building huge software packages, so it's generally not too hard to grab a few hours of downtime here and there to read and experiment with stuff. Our dev team (a whole two of us) have MSDN subscriptions, so it's open season on learning MS products and figuring out what might be useful to us.
Thus, I don't have a ton of experimental IT gear at home, nor do I feel all that compelled to continue doing at home what I do all day at work. I've got a desktop that does a few light server duties, and which is mostly just a means to and end. I do have a growing pile of assorted tablets, though...
Personally, I think the answer might be a hybrid situation. EG. Offer physical DVD rentals out of an existing establishment that's already successful on its own - like a gas station, bar or grocery store.
So Redbox machines, basically? I see quite a few of them around here.
After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
