Out with the OLD


#1

This stuff has been sitting here for almost 15 years. some of it is un used, and still in OEM boxes. I feel kind of bad throwing some of it out, but its useless and taking up space.


#2

Most of that looks in good condition, would be a shame to scrap it now that a lot of retro stuff is selling well on eBay and retro computing videos do well on YouTube.

But I suppose most of it is in that zone of not quite being retro, and way too slow for even a lighter weight modern OS?

Unless you are in the middle of nowhere why not try to auction it off, buyer collects?

EDIT: There might be a couple of people (well, at least 1) on the forum who would love a late 1990’s PowerPC IBM Workstation. I am sure there are OS’s still actively developed that are compatible with the 604e which I think that RS/6000 uses :slight_smile:

Ya, Like i said i feel kind of bad. if someone where to be local to Minneapolis I would not mind grabbing a few before they go to a recycle.

Had 4 of these brand new in boxes still. I am keeping it as a wall peace.
It has both Intel and AMD chips plus its 12 inch long, and has a ruler on the edge to show the length.


#4

There is a Buy/Sell/Trade forum here if you were willing to go that route for some of the stuff, and iirc there are some fairly active members somewhat close to that area.


#5

I am totally interested, if I could get you interested in shipping it, for appropriate compensation of course. What would make it worth your time to package up one unit? I am interested in all of (If it was an option Ii would drive there and load it all up)


#6

NO YOU MASSIVE FUCK SOME OF THAT SHIT IS VALUABLE

At least give it to a tech museum jesus


#7

But its not. So please private message me if you would.


#8

I dont think anyone likes being called a massive fuck


#9

ya and most of its probably not old enough to really be museum equipment.
On that note their is an old series one in parts around here.


#10

IBM fans would buy it.
The quality is insane.

One guy here adapted an old IBM case to new insides. IBM built cases for Armageddon
