Hey walsh, I live in memphis, and you are right about the regional issues! Nashville's education system (colleges) just got overhauled by dell (my father coordinated the project ) so check the colleges. Last time I checked a govt. auction site, there was a bunch of old Macs for sale in Nashville. Have at it, you lucky duck!I will search around thrift shops. Funnily enough, Goodwills here in Tennessee don't sell computers (almost like it wasn't meant to be! Ha ha!) I always hear about people finding iMacs at yard sales, G4s in their friend's attic, etc. I do think there's a regional component, and the southeast is probably the worst for stuff like this.
Yeah govdeals had some a while back.Thank you for the replies!
Keaton... what gov't auction site have you checked? I am only familiar with govdeals.com.
In my experience, older Macs on Craigslist lack of professional appraisal, therefor are largely overpriced. Also lots of deceptive "blazing fast G3!!" marketing.
