We will see ...

I have got some more info, and it appears the bulk of the systems are color slabs, with a few mono's thrown in for good measure. Do not know if any are turbos right now. No confirmed cubes yet Sad , but I still hold out hope as they dig through the stuff in storage.

The monitor for my Personal Iris is almost identical to the NeXT 21".
It only cost me $70 to ship from ontario to british columbia.


Yea, and that is one monitor at about 70lbs. Now try to imaging 30 of them, which is over 2000 pounds, allmost a ton just in the monitors. Even at an good freight price, it still may be more to ship them than they are worth.

I would love to, but I may not have a choice if it ends up being an "all or none" sort of deal.

Hi Chef,

Negotiate with him.

He'll be a lot more receptive if you emphasize it's to his benefit to have you take ANY part of it. Perhaps even make his job easier and find him a local rare metals recycler for the CRT's.

I hate to say it but CRT moniotrs are scrap. They are not worth shipping especially for color slabs that can use more modern LCD displays. Those NeXT monitors need to either be ditched (ouch) or found local homes.

I'm positive something can be worked out to save those CPUs from the heap.

The monitors are 17in color displays, except for four that are mono. Does anyone have a weight on the 17in display, or is it even worth the trouble to try and get them at all, as urquidez said.

I figured I would grab the mono ones, as those are useful on cubes, but the color ones are just dead weight. If someone in here really wants a 17in color, I may be able to work out something.

At least enough kb/mice/soundboxes to cover each system, but I do not know about any extras. I will probably have to see what I end up after it all arrives, assuming I actually can get this arranged.
