So, the college in my town, Indiana State University has a surplus equipment auction everymonth. Theres TONS of iMacs of varerying revisions, lotsa B&W G3s, and the occasional G4 and G5s, and there aree also usually a fair amount og Older beige Macs, and usually a few 68k macs, like the SE and such. But this time, there werent. and I was pretty bummed; this is my source for adding to my classic mac collection, and for parts. THey also have laptops, but they usually go way too high, and it turns into an ego war. Well, they had a 3400c 240mhz/64mb RAM/4gb HD/9.1 this time around. I wanted it. Bad. So I wait about 40 minuets for the auctioneer to go the laptop section. and I wait for them to get through most of the other laptops, staing on this awfull cement floor, and I had been up all the previous night. My fuse was getting shorter by the seconed. *FINALLY* he gets the the onw I want. I had bid $50, and He was on his last call when some bozo comes up and bids it up to $150, then he just stabts tghere and holds up the entirte auction looking at it, and turns around. after they had already moved on, and asks the auctioneer assistant if he could have it for $50. I was pissed. Royaly. I havent been that pissed in a long time. Anyways. on to what I actuallyu got :P.
Sonnet Zif G4-400 2mb L2 cache - $5
Box of Various nubus cards and adaptors - $1
P3 933 - $1
box of ADB mice - $2
I love the Zif G4. I poped it into a G3 MT and OMG, it is almost usable ^_^. Now all I need is a 64mb Radeon 7000 for it, and it will be maxed out ^_^.
