Hello all, Not entirely sure as to what this will entail, but I know that I personally enjoy reading through threads similar to this. As a collector, I often email various local schools or other places that were known to have older Apple/IBM/etc model computers in hopes that they're willing to part with whatever they're comfortable with. Whether it be charitable or for a price is completely up to them. I'm usually greeted with bad news and told that all of their older machines were recycled or they simply don't know, but sometimes I get lucky and snag a couple IIe's or IBM machines. Earlier this week, I exchanged some emails with the principal of a high school about half an hour away from my town asking about any older computers that were to be discarded or were just sitting. I wasn’t very hopeful, but I got a reply that intrigued me. *poorly made email recreation* _______________________________________________________________________________________ John Smith to me Most of our old computers have been recycled, but I do have an interesting Apple in storage that you might be interested in. Let me know if you would be interested or not. John Smith HS Principal _______________________________________________________________________________________ *name censored for privacy* “An interesting Apple” Hm… I’m used to being given a little more detail, but I didn’t think much of it & passed it off. I’d generally ask questions, but this time I thought I’d just take the offer & keep the actual identity of the “interesting Apple” a mystery. The wording he chose was of course more than likely simply because he didn’t know much about the computer rather than it being some mythical never-before-seen Apple machine, but it’s still fun to pretend. Whatever it is, it’s currently expected to be in his office Thursday this week. If it’s on time, I’ll be picking it up same-day. I’m expecting a Macintosh or Apple II series model computer. --I’ll update this thread when I go to pick it up.
