An -A model. Good luck selling that piece of junk.
Without the monitor or keyboard I would not value the system for more than $75.

That seller is NUTS. $49.82 for a 4 port dual speed hub. I end up throwing those away because I can't give them away.

The humor was pretty dry there wasn't it? ;-) It's an 8088 machine that can't boot from a hard disk (model A). Might be interesting to some from the cross-platform marketing but certainly not worth anywhere near that.

I usually drop anything that is not worth anything / of no use off at Goodwill. :)

Since the nearest good will is more than 20 miles away and the Salvation Army locations that are less than 25 miles away won't take electronics, it is to the scrapper they go for me.

This showed up in my ebay history (http://cgi.ebay.com/Digital-DEC-PC100-A-Rainbow-100-Micro-Computer-Vintage-/160553681849?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3D LVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D11491964437652539) and for a sec I thought "Hey! We all were heard!" but nope, totally different seller and the OP is still out there for 2k. Either way, similar product but seller has two for $150 each. Probably still on the high side but like I said, for folks who enjoy legacy companies dipping their feet into the PC end user market it's a fun collection point.
