Umm, I think we have two of these, with keys, sitting by the dumpster at work.
Handful of video adapters, SCSI cards, token ring adapters, even a
PrestoServe card in one of them.
I'm kind of surprised anyone would be interested in these things. But if you
are out there, let me know and I can try asking the powers... I may get
points for cleaning up the place :P (I got a 7012-390 and 7043-150 from work
once decommed, so the likelihood is good. There's a 7012-E20 that was just
decommed, and still the likelihood of a few 7015-R50's in 12-18 months.)
While I'm on the subject, there is a couple pallets of 7043-140's that they
want to get rid of for ~$150 (mostly 332's with 256MB, 10/100 ethernet,
various graphics, 4.3G disk, and P200 tube). Is this a good price?
