    trove of PowerMac towers - should I bother?

    I have the oppurtunity to buy 6 or 7 PM 8600/9600s, plus a 6300cd and a 6100. Cheap. Some are a bit skanky, but all are said to work. They're nowhere near as collectible as Quadra towers for...

    If you can afford frig ups in midstream you can experiment with aftetmarket. Granted there probably are reputable better quality outfits. I just know there's lots of junk out there.

    This is a colot laser printer. 3 colors x 80$ + 65$ for black = 305$. They'll match Amazon's price, so there's a bit of a break.

    Which is?

    I've had Mac IIs forever, I'm just kind of bored with them. And they are the only vintage Macs I'm at all interested in (II,IIx,IIfx). Besides the Quadra/Centris line.

    So ... any Quadra fans?

    68040 based Macs, some are Centris'. What are your feelings? I have a line on a couple Quadras. Wondering if it's worth the leap.
