    I have a few old Apple OS discs. CDs from the OS8 and OS7 days. Official ones. (no boxes though). Would anyone still be interested in these or should I just throw them in the trash?

    I dont want them myself, but they are worth a bit. Check out eBay. People do buy them.

    Please never throw anything like that away. It makes me cringe :(

    I have a few old mac things here that I just can't bring myself to toss out. Like a couple old extended keyboards, logic boards for a mac512k and a MacSE, an Ethernet kit for a MacSE, probably a few other things.

    Ask around at retromaccast.com and/or 68kmla.org

    I think I already have CD versions of all the OS7 & OS8 releases, but I might be interested if nobody else is.

    Thanks for all the replies. Sorry for my late reply now. Long story there.

    But I will check out ebay and the like. I just want them to have a good home. And not just sitting in the spindle I have for them doing nothing. I don't really need my 10.6 disc either. But I think I'll keep that for now. Sentimental reasons.

    And btw I've never heard of retromaccast.com and 68kmla.org. Thanks for letting me know.

    Speaking personally, I'd love to have original, model specific install/restore discs.

    I'll take them and put them in my collection. I'll make image files of them as well. My main Mac these days is a Quadra 605 which runs Sys 7.5.5 & OS 8.1

    Thanks!

    I'm interested in machine-specific discs. (Specifically a Workgroup Server 7350, G4 Cube, and 17" iMac G4 (OS 9.2.2+10.1.2) if you happen to have those...)
