    :eek: Eeeek!

    I'm not going to be as rude to ask you how much those are costing, but out of interest is someone selling a job lot of them or are you buying them from seperate listings?

    And another question, what do you intend to do with 9 of them? Keep some, sell some? Sounds exciting anyway.

    I was willing to pay up to £420 but they went for £485.

    Would have been fun to fix them all up and sell them on. PC100/133 RAM is cheap, so shoving 1Gb in would have been easy enough. Replacing dodgy DVD drives is easy too. I figured I'd be able to make a small profit or at least break even. But paying more than £45 for each machine would have been silly - they have no keyboards, mice or power cords, I have no idea about what gfx cards they have, that sort of thing.

    Would have given me something fun to do over the next few weeks.

    Ahhh cool, I was considering doing exactly the same thing with a job lot of PC towers I found on eBay, but decided on saving the money. Sounds like a fun thing to do though.

    I wouldn't have risked it with PCs!

    eBay really irritates me. I was also looking at this auction and with six days left, some new user has bid it up to £150 already. Bleh.

    Think I will abandon my G4 refurb plans and concentrate on finding a working BeBox or NeXT machine.

    I thought the PC's would spark a reaction around here :D I was going to "do up" PC's over Mac's because I have a greater knowledge of PC hardware and putting them together etc, I built my own aswell as my brothers so yeah.
