    eBay would be the best place.

    Not that I will be able to afford it but just curious what sort of price or how much were you looking to get for these ?

    Oi! When did you sneak into my house?

    *droool* mmmm ... fanboi heaven!

    Though I do have to admit to being disappointed not to see and 52xx or LC units ... I spent toooo long looking after those ... usually fixing them after @mac_shinobi had been on them doing 'school work' (aka netRisk!)

    I want to track down a "Apple Bandai Pippin" but very hard to find. More so the American version!

    @Carter. Some people would describe that as having a 'problem'

    Thanks for suggestions (not quite sure we have enough equipment or an awesome poster to replicate the Mac Hall of Fame) and inquiries. I have no idea what it is worth so probably putting it on Ebay is a good idea. Will need to wipe the drives etc so will post a message up here when we put it on in case anyone is still interested.

    Thanks again

    @Carter. What is that clamshell phone with an Apple logo on it (on top of the locker)?! I've never seen one of those before and drawing a blank on Google.

    The best thing to do with it all would be to sell it all as parts. You will get a lot more money doing this. If you look for 750gb xserve raid hard drives on ebay, they regularly sell for £170 for a used drive!

    You should have sold it as parts, you would have gotten so much more money for it all as parts, plus you could then sell it worldwide using shipping options rather than just collection only.
