Where to go with classic Macs?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just wondering if someone has a better idea what to do with some classic Macs than what I've come up with so far.

 

I've got a Duo dock, Performa 6214 (cpu only), Performa 6300CD (complete system, incl. box), Gen 1 Blue and White (El Capitan) PowerMac G3, Gen 1 PowerBook G4, Blueberry iMac (think it's a Gen 2), and a Gen 1 PowerMac G5 (standard video).

 

I know the recycling and junkyard options, but I'm hoping someone's got a better idea that I could use to get some or all of these re-used somehow or possibly someone with space to collect these things will like some/all of them.

 

I'm out of space...and options.  :(

Sorry I don't have any ideas about what to do, but I just wanted to say that is one collection!

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I'd say trash everything except the Powerbook and G5. They can still be sold on eBay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-PowerBook-G4-15-400-Titanium-incl-Airport-/231055752485 - say $150 for the laptop tops
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-PowerMac-G5-Tower-A1047-1-6ghz-2-gb-ram-500-gb-HD-White-Keyboard-mouse-/151136210854 - $100-150 for the G5

The iMac can be sold above $100 too:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/COMPUTER-COMPLETO-Apple-iMac-G3-Blueberry-mod-M5521-USATO-FUNZIONANTE-/221291578449

The money from the 3 might be enough to buy an iPad mini. Charge enough for shipping as the G5 especially will be very heavy.
