I have an Apple III - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_III

 

With Display, Additional floppy drive, disks, Manuals and 4 x Corvus 5mb hard disks - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corvus_Systems

 

Its been sitting quite happly, boxed up (not original) for at least 15 years, but I am in the process of moving to a smaller house, and it takes up quite a bit of room.

 

My options seam to be:

 

1) Move it..

 

2) Sell it..

 

3) Dontate it to some sort of entity.. Museum etc. (Suggestions?)

 

4) Throw it out.

 

What does the Geekzone collective think I should do?

Try it on Trademe for a $1 reserve (pickup only) and see what happens.

Agree, Trade Me $1 reserve. Plus show a picture of the screen after boot up will convince people it still works.

I have decided to put it on TradeMe.

 

I powered it on earlier today and it booted from a floppy.

 

$1 Reserve.. It will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Take a look at some of the eBay prices to get an idea of what it might be worth. It should certainly sell on a $1 auction on Trade Me.

You might make a few bucks with it, pretty cool tech those old apples. I especially liked the Apple IIGS.

But you really need 640k :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I did sell my Apple Lisa 1 for about that.. (about 10 years ago on Ebay.. went to a collecter in Japan). I should have kept it.
