Are those PowerBook Duos? I would just about give my left arm for one of those, had one back in high school and it was an awesome little laptop.

PowerBook 2400c were DUO successors, very small, fast and rare. PB 2300c were the last DUOs.
I have two of each serie. :)

How about the fact that the description reads "1 Mac Portable in its original suitcase"? Thats worth a nice amount! Its a nice collection of Macs, how much does the guy want?

A Macintosh Portable! I remember reading some guys adventure of trying to get a screen for that thing and that it ended up being a waste of time because it wasn't any good.

And these are all owner original owned! :eek:

I wish I lived in BC...

I wouldn't mind trying out the Macintosh SE; but I will probably never go out of my way to buy one.
Gavin, if you want a Compact Mac the SE is a really good starting point. They don't bring the prices of the original M0001 models(on the whole), use standardized peripheral connections like SCSI, RS-422 serial ports and ADB keyboards/mice, and can hold an internal HDD.

The SE/30 is the king of compact Macs, but it brings a price to match that status.
