Howdy all,


Lack of real estate and funds have finally driven me to the decision of brutally trimming down my collection of old computers and keep the focus on consoles and handhelds only. Over the coming weeks, i'll list most of my digital children here. These have all been part of my collection for the past 2 to 3 years, and have always been stored well (dry, warm, wrapped, neatly tied cables, etcetera). I've only been collecting working specimens, and have tested them before they went into storage. Before shipping, i will of course confirm that they still work. I'll test the AV out and keyboard, if buyer wants me to test any further, i'm open for suggestions. Lack software and peripherals for many systems though.


On to the main course, today's offer are two Macintosh Powerbooks. One is a Powerbook 140, and comes with manual and power supply. The other is a Powerbook Duo 230, which comes with a PSU.


I've stashed them away years ago (in working state if i recall), but had no luck trying them recently: both refuse to power up.
Could be corrupted PRAM, in need of power manager reset, faulty PSUs (although it seems unlikely both died...). Some people even brought these puppies back to life by just leaving it powered on over night. I just don't have the time and will to put an effort into it, so i'm selling them as-is. Both are cosmetically in pretty good shape, see pics.
