I'd love to have a 4000/60 someday but you know how the retail prices are
for those; off the wall. My target price on them is in the neighborhood of
$200-250 for something in good shape... not necessarily "maxed out" but not
beat up or missing major parts. I dunno, I've been stricken with car
trouble this week so I probably don't have anything to spend on vintage
computers anyway, but, if the price is right... maybe I could sell some
plasma or something, LOL. Are you gunning for full eBay price on these?
The PWS systems are nice little machines too but I still have a hard time
considering something with a PCI bus to be vintage & collectible ;)

As most of you know, I work for a company that decommisions data centers
and resells the equipment (usually eBay but sometimes directly). There
are a few things in the triage queue that might be of interest to the
list members. If there is interest, I'll approach my boss, otherwise
they'll be processed as usual.
By default we check eBay for the value before listing anything. At
the very least we value it at scrap value. And no, I can't take anything
out the back door for cheap :-) They're in business to make money.
These will all sell without the hard drives per our contracts with
our customers. As for the HP and IBM, I have not yet climbed back all
the way into the triage area to get more details. The desktops are
accessible to me.
Of course all of these are listed subject to prior sale.
Reply-To set to me personally, but if you have comments e.g. about
appropriateness, please feel free to redirect to the list. I'm a
big boy, I can take it :-)
