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 
once decommed, so the likelihood is good.  There's a 7012-E20 that was 
decommed, and still the likelihood of a few 7015-R50's in 12-18 months.)

I've just been asked to de-install three unwanted R50 servers on behalf of a 
govt site (they're configured as two 4-way and one 8-way machines). There 
is also a stack of associated SSA equipment (mainly 9GB sleds).

Apologies for my ignorance of RS/6000 servers, but what is the approximate 
power per MIP rating on these systems? Are they cost effective to run in a 
private capacity?
