I'm not sure if there will be any interest in these but, I have several old Macs that I've collected over the years that I'm willing to give away to anyone who might want them. The only thing I'd ask in exchange is shipping cost. We're in the process of moving and my wife does not want to take these with us. The collection includes ...

PowerBook 100: Not working but it does have the user guide.
PowerBook 1400CS: Most likely not working.
Macintosh SE/30: Not working, dumpster gift from a friend.
Power Macintosh 8500/180: This one may still be working. Best I recall it was working when I retired it.
Power Mac G5 1.8SP: Pretty sure this one should be working as well.

Hard drives have been removed from the towers.

I also have several old Apple mice, a couple old Apple keyboards and some random cables.

If nobody wants any of these, they will either go to our local e-waste center or a charity. I'd prefer the charity, but I'm not really sure what charity in the San Diego area could make good use them.

If you're having trouble unloading the PowerMac, you'd certainly be able to unload it on ebay and maybe make fifty bucks in the process. People will gut them to turn them into Hackintoshes. To this date nobody has made a PC case that looks just as good!

I do love that case on my mid 2010 Mac Pro.

Any chance you can take a look at the PowerBook 1400CS to see if it still works?
I've an old copy of MacDraw II that only works with MacOS 9.

cheers!

Sorry pup. I took all the old Macs last week to a local charity that provides computers to underprivileged kids.

Ah… that was a kind thing to do. I hope the children get enjoyment out of them. We can always use a little more happiness in this world.
