i was checking Ebay and found this lot

http://cgi.ebay.com/LOT-Vinatage-Macintosh-SE-SE-30-Classic-Plus-72-pieces_W0QQitemZ8802610953QQcategoryZ80286QQssPage NameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Its a Wall of Little Macs! i hope someone can buy these things because it would be a shame if the seller dumps them due to no bids.

I would expect someone to be interested, but the starting bid is ridiculous

about $13 per unit, they should have done it at $5 per unit.

No 128K, 512K, or 512Ke, mostly the crap earlier SE model...(the SE/30 is a real hotrod beast, 128MB RAM max!) - I wouldn't think twice of letting those all go to demanufacturing. In fact, I think we've done that many in a day more than once.

Well the "Classic Twins" as i call them are a little hard to find. SEs are cool, but are everywhere, Pluses are worth saving and restoring( my old 'portable' resume making computer was a Plus and a Stylewriter. The old Plus is a versitile little beast), and SE/30s are cool, but has anyone actually tracked down the 16 mb 30 pin simms it would take to max out an SE/30? I think what they need to do is break that "wall" up into smaller lots and sell those.

I'm sure we sell dozens of those 30-pin SIMMs to metal processing companies all the time where I work. Due to the colour of the contact metal, they all end up in the "Silver Memory" box...

yeah but the 16 mb ones are insanely hard to find( and expensive most of the time)

A place down the street usualy has them, their website quotes $15/simm at the moment.


They've been a decent enough place to deal with for me.

hmmm, yeah, eight of those, kinda pricey.

dude you have a supply. What are you waiting for, get a SE/30 and hot rod it! :biggrin: Though i'd up the hd while your at it, be kinda weird to have more ram than storage:crazy:
