House cleaning! Everything must go!

Ok, not _everything_ but rather an incredible simulation!
I've managed to amass quite a bit of vintage-ish computer hardware that
I haven't got much use for any longer -- I figure that someone out there
can make better use of this stuff than I currently am. All of this
stuff is free, unless otherwise noted -- I just want this stuff _gone_.
At the moment I realllly prefer local pick-up (in the Seattle area)
since I don't have a lot of time to be shipping stuff out. Unless
otherwise noted, the items are in working condition (or were the last
time I used them).
A lot of these are listed sans RAM/hard disk/keyboard -- I have a lot of
extra parts lying around and if you need one I'm happy to throw it in
for you, if I have suitable spares.
Some of these I don't remember all of the details of offhand (just did a
quick perusal of my inventory), so if you have specific questions or
need clarification, let me know and I'll figure it out for ya...
And of course, since this stuff is free, you get what you pay for --
I've tried to do my best to be honest about the state of the below junk,
but I haven't used some of it in years so I make no guarantees.
The items are as follows:
- Apple Network Server 700/200. 200Mhz 603 PPC, 128mb of ram, CD-ROM,
tape drive, and a number of empty drive trays. Notable as the only
Apple computer made after the original Mac that doesn't run MacOS.
Makes a great Linux/NetBSD machine, or if you have a copy of AIX 4.1 for
- SGI Octane, 200Mhz R10k, 512mb ram, no hard disk (or tray,
unfortunately...). Cabinet is slightly scuffed in front.
- SGI Indigo2, 250Mhz R4400, Solid Impact video, unknown RAM (fully
populated). No hard disk (or trays... sigh...)
- 2x Sun Sparcstation 10, framebuffer, 40Mhz CPU, sans RAM & hard disk.
- Sun Ultra 5, 266Mhz UltraSparc.
- Sun Ultra 1, Creator 3D video.
- Sun SparcServer 670MP. 4x40Mhz, 64mb RAM (huge, good for an anchor,
ballast, scrap iron, or if you have a lot of Sun VME boards...).
CD-ROM, 2.0gb hard disk w/SunOS 4.1.4 installed. Missing rear cover,
and missing wheels on bottom, which makes it fun to move.
- 2x HP Apollo 715/75 -- not working, no ram, no hard disk, missing 1
CPU in one of them. Listing this just in case someone needs parts...
- HP Apollo 735, 24mb ram (I think...), no hard disk.
- HP Apollo 700, no hard disk.
- Zenith luggable PC (no idea on the model, the label sticker on the
back is unreadable). 2x5.25" floppy, 8088, 640k ram (all you'll ever
need.) Missing keyboard, but takes standard XT keyboard.
- Intergraph TD-310. Dual PPro-200Mhz, no RAM.
- Sony "ViewSystem" VIW-5000. Is it a 286 PC? Is it a Laserdisc
player? No, it's both! I have no idea what this was intended to be
used for, but it sure is weird. And large. And free!
- Apple G3 "All-In-One". 233Mhz G3, built in 15" CRT, no hard disk.
Will run OS X 10.3, with some trickery.
- Apple Powermac 8100/80av. Ugly as sin, but has 233Mhz G3 upgrade in
PDS slot, which evens that out a bit.
- PowerComputing PowerBase 200.
- Unknown portable X-Terminal w/plasma display. No power supply or
peripherals. I have no idea if it works.
- Network Computing Devices X-Terminal.
- Big box of 386, 486, and Pentium motherboards & expansion cards
(serial/parallel/ide combo cards, video, etc...). Most have CPUs, and
ignoring the inevitable CMOS battery failures, should still work fine.
- Mac IIfx motherboard, sans RAM and ROM simm. Works, but ROM simm is
- Intergraph Intervue 20". Multi-frequency (not multisync), works at
standard VGA frequencies, higher resolutions are at specific frequencies
only, and are somewhat oddball. If you have a Matrox video card, their
"Powerdesk" drivers have special support for this monitor, which makes
using it under Windows quite easy. Works fine under X with specialized
- Radius Portrait/15 Pivot. 15", portrait/landscape. Neat.
- Mag 17" monitor. Works OK most of the time, but screen sometimes
randomly changes width. A fun weekend project for someone!
Printers & Peripherals:
- HP Laserjet II. Non-working, but probably easy to fix (has trouble
pulling paper out of the tray, otherwise works fine last time I tried
it). Needs new toner cartridge.
- TRS-80 DMP-120 printer, unknown condition, but seems complete.
- HP PaintJet. Very early inkjet printer. Worked the last time I used
it, no idea if you can still buy ink for it...
- Kodak Photo CD burner (external SCSI box). This is a standard 2x CD-R
drive, as far as I know...
Other, sort of OT, but sort of computer related:
- Sony LDP-1000A Laserdisc player (hey, it has an RS-232 port on the back!)
- Pioneer LD-V4200 Laserdisc player (also w/RS-232 port)
