Looking to shrink my collection of Mac items to free space and concentrate on the stuff I actually use! Oh yeah making some cash would be nice too!
I'll take trades too, but what I'm looking for right now is pretty limited - if it wasn't, I'd just end up with more stuff to store!

If you're interested in something, please email me at tmbannon at comcast dot net and make an offer. Please include your address (at least ZIP) so that I can get an idea on shipping costs. I'm located in Central PA, ZIP 17111.

There is lots of FREE stuff available, but ONLY for those who come to pick it up! I don't have a listing of what all is free, but if you're local email me and I can give you a general idea. THINGS LIKE PISMOS ARE NOT FREE!!! Sorry, but even though I put that someone will still ask for a free one...

Lots of older Mac items plus some newer stuff:

- hard to find Nubus cards
FWB Jackhammers
Radius Thunder 24/GTs (Thunder IV GX w/o Photoshop DSPs)
Other upper end video cards
Radius Rockets and add on's
Pro AudioSpectrum with breakout box
Audiomedia II
VideoVision Studios

- pre-G3 Macs and clones
Ask, I've got alot!
No real "collecter's condition" Macs though.

128MB of IIfx Ram (8x16Mb)! - $20 per 16MB or $150 for it all
30-pin and 72-pin SIMMs

- Processor Upgrades
IIci Cache card
Daystart P33 33MHz 68030
Nubus Powermac G3 upgrades
I might even sell the makings of a 40MHz 040 SE/30 with ethernet AND a spare PDS slot....Cool Mac

7200/10K SCSI drives
< 1GB older SCSI drives

Powerbook 3400c's and Kanga G3's and lots of parts,
G3 Powerbooks (Lombards, Pismos)
G3 366 iBook SE.
Parts for all but the iBook!

Lots of misc cables, adapters, parts ect ect...

Are any of the powerbooks free? If so I can't pay to have them shipped ?

Of course all the Powerbooks

Of course all the Powerbooks are free! You can't pay to have them shipped? Don't worry I'll have them delivered to you express! It would be great if you lived somewhere remote like on a mountain top in Tibet or possibly in Antartica - It'll be exciting to see how much that shipping costs!

NO the powerbooks are not free. Sorry but I just get annoyed at the number of "Can I have a free laptop? I'm a student." postings I see everywhere. I was a student. I didn't have a laptop. I did have a computer (well a PC) and I worked to pay for it. I certainly didn't spam every news group and message board I could find asking for a free one.

Hey, read this--I have money!!


No requests for freebies honest!

I was wanting to know two things:
1) What types of Powerbook G3 parts do you have? I am looking for processor upgrades for Wallstreet 233 w/no cache.

2) How much for your Lombards and Pismos? What kinds of configs do they have?

Well, I guess that's technically three questions, but hope you answer them just the same.

You *did* make the comment that someone would chime in and ask for a free one in your OP even though you say a definite no, and so someone did. ;D

Problems - No sound from either speakers or headphone jack, otherwise runs fine. While opening this up to check for the source of the sound problem I tore the ribbon cable that connects the trackpad to the logic board (this one seemed rather brittle). Easy to replace, but I don't have a spare and I cannot give you any answers on the sound problem. With the ribbon cable replaced you'd have a very nice iBook capable of running 10.3 (with a RAM upgrade). Actually it functions fine now with a mouse attached.

No keyboard
