Erlangen University in Northern Bavaria, Germany, is about to 
dispose of some old computing equipment from the departments 
of Electrical Engineering and Materials Science:

-several (10 +-) HP 700/RX colour X-Terminals, complete with
 HP Sync-on-Green monitors, cables, HP-HIL Keyboards and Mice.
 Comes with tower stand.

-some (5 +-) HP 712/100 Workstations, complete with
 HP (VGA?) Monitors, cables, HP PS/2 Keyboards and Mice.
 Comes with tower stand.

-a couple HP apollo 9000/? (600? 700?) Workstations
 (narrow tower or wide pizza box), complete with
 HP Sync-on-Green monitors, cables, keyboards and mice.

These are all upgrade throws and therefore were working until shut
down (except for one 712/100). Software to boot the X-Terminals is
available on http://www.cb3rob.net/~sven/xterm/, for example.

I'll be saving some of the stuff for the museum and some more for
myself, but of course I can't take the whole load. However as I
don't want it crushed, I offer to put aside and store what you
promise to pick up. Shipping may be possible, but we're trying to
avoid it at the moment.

ATTENTION: even if the X-terminals and HP 712/100 have VGA style
monitor connectors, DON'T try any ordinary VGA screen on them!!!
My personal 700/RX (b/w variety) has blown one of my fairly modern
VGA monitors (although it worked with a different one), so be sure
to check the supported frequency ranges! Best take a monitor that
comes with it.

Hope to hear from you,
