I spent $50 (mostly shipping) to get my first A/UX 3.1 media and manuals
(for the aws95) from a guy in New Zealand. years later I got a new set mint
in shrinkwrap from a guy close to me for free along with a mint AWS 95 free.

I would be surprised that a whole truckload of Macs would be dead, not so
surprised that all of them won't boot because of a dead PRAM battery (every
machine I acquired needed one).


This is the device I was talking about, expensive new (worth a few times
what the Quadra 700 would cost to replace) but can be found on ebay if you
keep looking.
