I've got a handful of DEC/Alpha equipment as part of an estate. I need to
get rid of it, and I'd hate to see this stuff just get disposed of.
I'd like to sell it cheap to an SDFer in the DFW area. Or anyone knows
dealers in the area who work with this stuff and might be interested in
buying, I'd appreciate a referral in their direction.
First up is a DEC Digital VRCX1-WA 21-inch monitor. This is a great
monitor. I'd even use it myself, but it's a huge CRT monitor that I just
don't have the deskspace for. Manufactured 1997. Bought used in 2002 for
$145. Works good. Would like to get $50 for it.
Also have Digital Server 3000 50mhz Alpha 128MB. Unknown hard drive.
He bought it with 4.5Gb SCSI, but I think he may have upgraded it. I
don't know enough about the monitor this thing boots up into, but an Alpha
person can contact me if they're interested and tell me how to figure it
DEC Alphastation 400 4/233 with 256MB RAM. Have not even started this
DEC Personal Workstatioin 433au. Unknown RAM, appears to have no hard
drive. HP SureStore DAT24 tape drive.
I installed NetBSD on the Digital Server 3000 and got it to work just
fine several months ago, but now can't remember how I did it. Need room,
and don't have the time to fiddle anymore. The estate needs the money.
So, if I could get $45 a piece for the computers and $50.00 for the
monitor, I'd be really happy. It would be great if someone could take
them all off my hands.
I live in Denton, so I could meet someone halfway in Dallas, Ft Worth, or
Money is not the huge priority, but I'd prefer not to have to ship them as
it would involve a lot of boxing up and packaging and whatnot. So I'd
rather sell them to someone in driving distance, even if it's for a small
amount. The amounts aren't hard and fast, and I'd definitely consider a
considerable discount if someone took it all of my hands in one batch.
