Hi Brent,

I'd be interested in the TRS-80 model 100...

Sorry for replying on-list, but I've sent you 
private emails in the past and got no reply so I 
suspect I may not be getting through for some 

I think I've got a scrap XT keyboard somewhere in 
case someone needs a key or two.

Subject: moving cleanout - IBM XT(s), assorted

So my house sold yesterday after < 3 days on the 
market (the market here is nuts).
I have about two months to move, so a bunch of 
stuff has to disappear.

Location is the Vancouver, BC, Canada region (Port 
Moody more precisely).
Most of this stuff is larger and I'm not going to 
have a lot of time to pack & ship, so local pickup 
is expected.

If there is competition for something I guess it 
goes to the one willing to offer the greater 
number of bucks,
otherwise items are free as the alternative 
destination is recycling/scrap.
Any bucks involved are not because I expect a lot 
(or anything), but just to sort out who 'values' 
it the most
if there is multiple interest in an item.
I reserve the right to be whimsical in any 

The following is 'off-the-top-of-my-head', I 
haven't examined this stuff in awhile.
If someone would like a photo of something, let me 

Additional stuff may filter out in the near 

======== XTs

drive is flaky (booted from floppy last time I

- with keyboard & amber-phosphor monitor

======== Macs

Mac Quadra 605 / LC475
68040 pizza box
- with ADB keyboard and mouse
- no monitor

Mac Performa 5300CD
beige all-in-one, kind of the all-in-one 
predecessor to the original iMac
- with ADB keyboard and mouse

Mac PowerPC tower
beige G3
- with ADB keyboard and mouse
- no monitor
yes, bland and unexciting, the redeeming point is 
it's kind of a "multi-medium machine":
zip drive
floppy drive
CD-ROM drive
SCSI bus
IDE bus
some video/audio IO

original iMac Rev A
'the very first iMac model', bondi-blue of course
- complete with puck mouse, the proper keyboard 
and the proper 'clear' power cable
- original Mac OS8 install media and box
I think it has 40 or 60MB of memory but could 
really do with more - a couple of memory sticks 
were zapped as I was swapping them testing another 

I'm not completely sure how many ADB 
keyboard/mouse sets there are, at least 2.

======== NTSC monitors

4 green-phosphor 12" NTSC monitors.
I think 2 of them will go and I may hang on to 2.

Typically used with late-70s / early-80's micros.
I have to hang on to one of them to go with my 
SWTPC CT-1024 terminal, for example.
One of them (NEC) was originally sold in a package 
with and used with an Apple II.

======== TRS-80s

2 or 3 TRS-80 CoCos

TRS-80 Model 100
the laptop

TRS-80 portable/luggable
I'd have to check/confirm on this one, it was at 
the radio museum, if it's there it should go.

======== bonus

circa-1980 colour TV, 13-14"

If you really want the authentic (i.e. awful) 
RF-modulated-display experience from your vintage 
80's micro, without the mass of a 17,19,21" CRT, 
this could be it.
