Hello everyone!

I regret to inform you that I am forced to sell my entire collection... :( This is due to my upcoming surgery and as much as I love every single unit and/or part in it, reality is pretty harsh and I really have no other choice because these are most valuable items I have right now... So I prefer to sell it to forum member or members rather than go to ebay. This way I will know where they are and that thay are in good and loving hands. Many of the laptops, tablets and portables here are extremely rare and next to impossible to find. About 15-20% are listed in my signature below. I will be constantly updating this post and include as many units as I can muster because right now can not walk and once I get a little better will start making a comprehensive list of items. Because of the forum rules, I have to post some kind of asking price, so for now I will put it for the whole collection at $47 000. This is just a fraction of money I've spent on it over the years of collecting. But this is how much I need to stay alive today. This price does not include shipping cost as we are talking over 400-500 pounds of stuff including packing materials, boxes, batteries, Pelican cases, docking stations, manuals, software and power adapters. However, in case one person buys it, I will personally hire a van or truck and deliver everything anywhere in the continental USA for free. Please, let me know your thoughts about this and I will do my best to accommodate every single PM or question and transaction. I am willing to sell them one by one as well, but in this case you have to pay actual shipping and insurance costs and yes, I will ship internationally.
Some of the rarest and precious gems included in this collection are:

Sorry to hear...especially after all that hard work to gather them. I'm half tempted to start buying mine back...

Hope all goes well with your surgery.

In a motion picture with hormonal teens and potential world destruction? :)

As others, I wish the OP well with the surgery. I always joke that I would be buried with my TPs, but real life is serious.

Thanks Bill!

Unfortunately do not have IMSAI or ALTAIR yet, life changed my priorities now... But you know me... If I will ever get better I will get them and pretty sure will end up buying back my collection one by one as well...
