    So I love going junking for deals i.e. thrift stores, garage sales, craigslist, estate sales ... hell even eBay I guess. I have found some nice stuff this month. This month's finds include:

    A1243 apple keyboard - $12.00, clean & my favorite design.

    LG External Superdrive - $1.00, like new.

    I also just found the correct BT A1115 card for my PMG5 for $7.75 shipped but that was on eBay, not local. So what have you guys found recently? Anything cool?

    Nice! I remember a few months ago I picked up 3 keyboards, 3 mice, and 2 Apple Cinema Displays (the older type, without the camera) at a sale at our local college. And all of this for under $20. The screens were only $5 each, so I bought the only 2 they had. I soon found out, though, that the power supplies can cost about $25-$30 on average, so it wasn't such a good deal after all. :D

    Oh, and I also picked up an Apple PlainTalk microphone at a Thrift Store, but it isn't compatible with any of my computers.

    $12.00 at Goodwill, some time in 2004 I think.

    CISCO 24-port powered hub. FastHub 100 series.

    Hot damn what a score! And I was excited about my new 4port Linksys switch I scored for $2.00 at thrift town. Oh yeah, I got that too.

    Today's score is a generation 1 IPod dock & charger for $3.99 + 20% off so around $3.20 before tax.

    I have that stuff, as well as the iPod it came with. In original box! I use that dock all of the time to play music.
