A local school is letting go of several older machines and they need a good home.

Free for the price of shipping from 32244:

  • several LC580s - pretty stock config, OS unknown
  • several All-in-ones - config and OS unknown

I am unsure of how many of these there are, but I anticipate that I will be able to provide as many as you ask for. These machines will include:

  • CPU
  • Monitor (for the LC - yes, for the AIO - not sure yet)
  • keyboard + mouse
  • any cables to support anything above (including AC)

$50 + shipping from 32244:
The $50 is what it will cost me to get (per machine) and I pass that on to you Smile .

  • sixteen G3 upgraded PowerMac ranging from 6x00 to 9x00 with a few (3 or 4) of these being StarMax clones, but mostly Apple.

These machines will include:

  • CPU
  • keyboard + mouse
  • any cables to support anything above (including AC)

If I can get monitors, I will update this thread.

These are all first come-first serve. Shipping price will need to include packaging and I can let you know that when I know what you want and how many of them.

I take PayPal and am not looking to profiteer, just rescue.

Hey, if you can get any Blue and White or Graphite monitors, I'd be interested in one.

not likely...

I am not sure that they have any of those going out, but I will look and ask if so.

several All-in-ones - config and OS unknown

Are the All-in-ones the Power Mac G3 (All-in-One)?

Prices for shipping

In order to answer some of the questions I have gotten about shipping, I have set some flat rates. These prices assume you are US.

AIO - $45
LC580 - $40
PowerMac towers - $90 (this includes the already stated cost of $50)

These prices cover shipping from 32244 via UPS Ground, packaging, and that's it. The weight of these has an influence on the price. If I make anything off of this it is really pocket change. These just need a good home.

For non-US - I will ship to you, but it will cost more. I will just need to have an exact address in order to quote a price.

*bump*

These things are not going to be here long and I have not had any takers on any of it short of what I take for myself.

I know some of you were interested in some 9600's and there are a few in this lot.

Send me a PM if you want any - they all need a good home! The window of opportunity here may only laast for another week or two.

No, the towers here are G3 upgraded 6x00, 7x00, 8x00, and 9x00 machines. I did not have plans to do pieces/parts of these unless a lot of people ask and you are the first. But yes, the G# upgrade cards from one of these would work for you. These are Sonnet cards. I do not know what the RAM situation looks like, I doubt they are maxed but are at least as good as stock.

Update:
There are 10 LC 580s, 4 LC 550s, and 20 8600 PowerMacs (with up to 200MB RAM and most with USB.

The AIOs are not the GE AIO as I originally stated and I apologize for the mistake - I had a miscommunication with the school.

Also note that the price of the PowerMacs is corrected to $75.

I apologize for the confussion I created with bad info.

LC580

Pick-up one of the LC580's for me and I'll swap you something for it when we finally meet.

Thanks...

Wow, zing! Been looking for

Wow, zing! Been looking for a lc550 motherboard for a while. So in addition to the g3 card I'd be interested in one of those. Probably not going to happen - but may as well express interest.

I can get you the LC 550, but the G3 card comes with a PM 8600 with about 200MB RAM and should also have a USB card.

Coming to a close...

I can get these up through Monday. I have already picked up (or will be doing on the second trip) stuff for the following Fritter Critters:
dvsjr
macg4
MacTrash1
Kreats

If you do not see your name, I have lost you. PM me ASAP.

After Monday, the local Mac Group will get in and pick through what's left and this offer withdrawn.
