Last week I went to a surplus auction done by my local university. They usually have a good amount of macs up for sale. So I picked up a few for cheap!
That is, 3 233 beige g3s ,a 300 beige g3 tower, 2 9600s with g3 upgrade cards, a 8500 with and upgrade card, a powerbook 5300, and a se/30
I have been playing around with these and I was looking for some suggestions on them. I would like to sell a couple and try to make a little money. About how much might I be able to get from some of these?
actually many of them were free, the most I paid was $7 dollars for one of the 9600s. And it has a 500 mhz g3 upgrade card and 640 MB of ram, so I was happy with the price. There are a few more macs lying around my room too but that is the majority of them.

Here in town just a few miles away theres a navy surplus that sales old used computers from the navy for like 20 bucks for 10 systems. Sadly they're none tested and older then dirt. I almost got a palit of Color Classics for 50 bucks but I was too late. Just as I got there to pay for them some guy from the county school board pulled a fast one and got them. Oh well though I ended up getting 12 ThinkPads for the same price and they were still in great shape and worthy to run Linux.
If you're willing to sell individual parts, I could use a power supply from a 9600/300 or 9600/350. They have an extra powrful 560W supply that I would love to buy from you. Heck, if you have it I may even buy the whole computer.
Sadly, the G45142dp mod has found its new home now. BUT, I did get a like new B/W, that actually had the protective sticker on the sides and the UNUSED keyboard and mouse. Too cool. I also got an old powerbook, dont know if it works though. -maestro
Shadowboxer, I have two fully functional 9600's, one 350 and one 300. neither of them have their original processors but those are around here somewhere. I would be willing to let one of them go, either in parts or the whole thing. send me a PM.
