Acme Corp purchased a computerized measuring device two years ago for \$80,000. It falls into the five-year category for MACRS depreciation. The equipment can currently be sold for \$28,400.

A new piece of equipment will cost \$210,000. It also falls into the five-year category for MACRS depreciation.
