Free Stuff (More Or Less)

I just went through a move, and discovered that I have too many computers. Due to health reasons, I want to thin some of these out so that my next move I won't hurt as badly as I do right now (oh, the pain...).
What I have to let go of are as follows...

Quadra 660AV - good shape, believe it's running 7.5.5, but haven't played with it other than confirming that the PRAM battery has to be replaced. The unit does power up.

Stack o' Pentium // boards - three of 'em, pretty bare.

WYSE DecisionMate SX laptop - Interesting little unit. Very thin, running a 386SX/20, 4MB RAM, 200MB hard drive, no floppy, no power supply, no OS.

There are a few other things I might let go of... feel free to ask (for instance, that Mac Plus that's a little dinged and has a loose connection on the analog board, in the old beige carrying case, original Mac 512 keyboard, external floppy...).

with good reason

For anyone's future reference, I've discovered that the plastic on Quadra 605s, due to age or whatever reason, is VERY brittle. Please take this into consideration if you ever ship or have one shipped to you.

the first one I received... took this pic before finding all the other pieces broken, about 18 in all, but notice the large piece... its the tab off the back of the lid. crud.

the second one... sent generously from a fellow fritterer. It was packed reasonably well, but it was nonetheless crushed during shipping... in all almost 40 broken pieces, including the tabs on the back of the lid, but also, all the tabs holding the PSU in place. triple crud.
