I paid $35 for mine and found it on Craigslist. It is from the "It's a Dell, dude." era.

It doesn't connect to the internet (no wifi adaptor.) So it's isolated, immune to internet born viruses, etc., and never needs to be upgraded.

If ever I come across someone who's practically giving away durametric and an OBD cable, I'll install it on my good old XP laptop. Apple stuff & Android are wonderful, but I wouldn't go to the trouble with old netbooks available.
Brian, if you ever do need access to the Durametric, I have the enthusiast kit with two open VINs available.
