Spring cleaning prices...

Boxes for the original twin towers [Beige G3 that is] from 1998 found in storage; #1 was $3369, #2 was $2199 purchased about 7 months apart. Both were loaded 300MHz models w/ Apple ROM (Atto?) UWSCSI cards/drives, built in ZIP drives, etc. Identical as could be, except newer/cheaper tower had updated/upraded video IIRC. Anyhow, the one that has been "on loan" was recently returned and will be donated to Harbourmaster's causes in the not too distant future; complete w/ original box smiling smiley. [semi-]Matching Sony (CRT) monitor also has original box from same MacMall purchase to accompany Harbourmaster on the equipment's next journey. FWIW, the "keeper" tower here has been totally Frankenmac'ed and is still in regular use as the scanning station [big honkin' commercial SCSI HP flatbed w/ gianormous ADF for B/W document processing, and a much smaller Epson Perfection via FW/USB combo card for family photos and other color work]. Wonder what an inflation adjusted $3369 will fetch Mac-wise today...

Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

Alas, the inflation adjusted Beige tower will fetch about $5 today......

One case where 'antique' means 'worthless'.
