Macs for Sale

I am downsizing my computer collection. I am going to put these up on ebay, but if someone here shows interest, I would be willing to let them go for the price of shipping, provided its a good home.

iMac G4 700mhz 17 inch screen running 9.2.2 Includes original keyboard/mouse/speakers. Also included is an external monitor cable. I have hacked the firmware to let the external monitor be any resolution, up to 1920 by something.

Powerbook G3 Series with 300mhz cpu and 64mb of ram and a 40gb hd. It does have a PCIMCI card stuck in the bottom slot that I can't get out. I think its a modem and I don't have any cables for it. Battery is not good.

Powerbook 190cs. Non functional. It only clicks when you give it power. Could be good for parts. Screen was in good shape when it was last powered on.

I am also getting rid of a Dell 700m and a Tivo if anyone is interested.

I'll wait 1 week from today, so on 8/15 they will go on ebay. I am located in Jonesboro Arkansas.

If I was living in the US, I would have been interested in all of the Macs, broken or not. Sad to say, I'm on the other side of the globe.

Hope your ebay sale goes well, if they don't go before then.

Same here (Australia), but I would have loved that G4 iMac, loved, loved, loved!

Dang.

I am in the same situation with a BBC Micro-B, with monitor and floppy. Too bulky to ship anywhere effectively. Sad

Thanks for your generous friendly offer!
You may know, I´m in Germany. Can you figure out, how much the shipping for the PB G3 would be?
(Still it would be more reasonable to donate it to somebody in the US, I´m afraid.)

Edit: Whats in the extension bays, and how could I pay you for shipping e.g. Master Card?

If the 190 powerbook does not start this might be due to the power slot in the back. Those often break or get loose in the inside of the powerbook; an old problem with the 190s. However, this purely mechanical problem can be fixed.

I had a feeling that the 190 can be fixed. I just don't have the time to try.

Maybe somebody around here would like a shot.

I can't take a credit card directly, but I can through pay pal. I'll look into shipping to Germany. Do you have a postal code I can use to check rates?

The media bay has a 20x CDROM drive in it. Looks to be the original that came with the computer.

Oh boy, seems it would be something short to one hundred bucks to my place.
Plus a fresh Li-battery for about the same.
Thats too much for me, sorry.
Thanks again for your kind offer, but ebay is the way to go I guess.
