Not much of a market for old Macs these days. A month or so ago I was
looking for a Quadra 950 PS for my 2nd unit and a guy close to Cleveland
said he has a parts 950 I could have if I drove up and got it (about an hour
away). So I drove up there (grabbed the yellowing 950) and he started giving
me other stuff like a brand new looking AWS 95 that was never used and
included the full still sealed A/UX 3.x software set with manuals and it had
the rare 5 drive tray inside also (all free). Same guy was selling an early
PPC with monitor for $50 (no I didn't want it).
I can see nobody wanting a skid of old Macs (most people just want a
specific model), did you keep the machines or resell them individually on
Still if you need a specific machine $10 plus shipping isn't that bad (even
that is probably not worth Sellams time to box up).
