I have probably 20 old macs. Laptops, classics, pizza boxes... Momma wants them gone. Every one worked the last time I had them booted up. I really hate to fill the dumpster. But what can I do with them?? Of course, I know I will never recoup the money, memories or love. I would give them to the needy but Shipping the stuff is probably not worth anyone's effort. Any Suggestions?

Post your zip code?

If you post your zip code it'd be easier for folks to determine if they're within pick-up distance of you.

The problem with exchanging these old Macs is that the shipping costs are usually more than the machine is worth.

Worth is subjective.

I bought A/UX 3.01 recently on ebay, and spent a lot.
All the manuals, disks, CD in perfect condition. Now I have a boxed copy of every version of the Mac OS. By this I mean, what it is worth is what someone will pay for it. The old stuff is novelty, and hobbyists, not people looking to run excel, are the ones we are talking about.

Macs

If you could send me the list I'll see if there's anything I could get off your hands for you.

Thanks
