I'd expect that upgrade kit would have to be at least 350USD.  So as
long as you can sell the GTA01 for more than 100USD, it should be better
to do so.

Also, given the low quantities we run at this time, it would really hurt
us to see that many GTA01 going to the junkyard.  If the old ones get
sold, we increase the population of Neo's.  If we take them apart and
re-use, we don't get more devices deployed..
