Goodwill find of the YEAR, or maybe CENTURY!!!
Posted by: richorlin
Date: May 18, 2021 11:25AM
Stopped at my local Goodwill shop this AM to pick up some shirts. Great place to buy name-brand shirts that originally sell for $49 to $69 for only $4.99.
I checked the back of the store where they keep electronics and such and I spot a laser printer on the shelf. It's an HP Laserjet Pro 400 Color M451dn for only $20. I asked for a couple sheets of paper to test it and it works fine. 3 of the 4 carts are at least 2/3 full.
Network compatible, does photos nicely and 3rd-party replacement carts can be had for $50-60 on Amazon with excellent reviews. We're in business! If I find that's it's not useful, I can put it on Craigslist for $50-100.

A Rolex…at Goodwill? Maybe at a pawn shop. Or maybe you can find a ‘Polex’ watch at Goodwill.

True, but without the added zest in the subject line, I probably would not have clicked...

Good find, but we've gotten stuff at the goodwill outlet that are far better deals.

Good find!
I've yet to find anything even remotely as good a find at my local thrift stores.

I found a new Newton once. Trying to remember what my best deal was.

Finding a Newton would be pure gold for me. Those were so cool at the time. I used to visit our local goodwill but all they ever had were crappy plastic stereo's, old monitors, and a pile of cables. Wasn't worth the occasional visit. I suspect the quality of items at Goodwill depends on the town. When I visit Hood River, OR the goodwill is filled with clothing with very nice labels.

Goodwill has their own online auction presence.

I seldom see cameras, electronics, or anything that even smells like it might be worth something at my local Goodwills.

Wow, that's cool. My dream would be either a PowerBook 100, a Powerbook 2400, or a TAM.

Which I need like a hole in the head.

That's only when you're playing Crysis on it.

Prints b&w or color. Your choice when printing.

The B&W proofs thing is an old joke around here. Frankly though, I don't remember how it became that.

When the world was only B&W. Or at least Macs were.
