Hey, I've come across some G3s that my university has surplused, but they only list serial numbers. Is there any database of serial numbers available that will give me a clue as to their original specs, at least? I'm not even sure whether they're MTs,DTs,AIOs,B/Ws... any ideas? Thanks a ton!

serial numbers

You got it, and the university doesn't take kindly to schlepping your through their surplus warehouse if you decide the machines aren't worth your while after seeing them.

The university should be more

The university should be more considerate and provide proper model names/numbers like any other sensible seller.

It's like giving you a bunch of phone numbers without names. Useless.

Wink Just tell your university that you need more than a serial number to make a decision.
