    Buying Vintage Computers/Accessories - paying over scrap prices (Midwest/East Coast)

    Greetings! I am a large scale collector of vintage computers. I am located in Northeast Ohio, but I travel all over the East Coast and Midwest buying old computers in large quantity. I am looking for anything Windows 98 or Apple 1999 and older. The older the better of course. I buy computers, old monochrome monitors, accessories, software, etc. Please message me if you have anything like that in a large quantity. Thanks! -Ben @ 330-365-6296 (call/text)

    Welcome Ben!
    I had the opportunity to work with Ben a few weeks ago. I highly recommend him as a vintage buyer. He is a top notch guy, fair and motivated. He is willing to travel and is knowledgeable of all things vintage. He purchased many of my items I have previously posted in my "Day in the life" post. After we loaded his van FULL, and my wallet FULL, I now have some much needed space for ... you guest it ... more SCRAP !!! Thanks Ben !!!

    Just scrapped a Mac 2fx last week. Didn't realize they were worth anything more than scrap. Still have the boards.

    Just looked it up. That was about a $9,000 computer in the early 90's.

    I swear to everything holy I will be through this pile of computers sometime in the next couple months...I do have some 3.1, 95, and 98 stuff. Just found a nice pile of old hard drives too. I have no idea on the age of some of them, but I'm guessing 3.1 era on some. Unsure as to their working status though. I'll be in touch as the time draws near.
