These things didn't have a HDD they just had 1 or 2 Floppies and that was it.

if you needed to save any Data you wrote that to one of the Floppies or a Tape Drive that was a standard Cassette.

As for the value of them I have no idea I didn't work on them new I didn't have anything to do with them new except for 1 instance when I fixed a Undocumented Feature and disgruntled user but you could try looking here at what is being sold on E Bay for some idea of what these are fetching now.
