You just never know what you're going to find at a garage sale, so it's always worth it to stop and take a look around.

This guy tells his story: "Walked up to a random garage sale on Saturday and saw this. Chatted the seller up, and it turns out his father had bought this new, used it for a year or two, then bought a newer model. It had been in storage since then. Let's see what's inside!"

"Don't mind if I do, thanks Apple. I always wanted to do this when I was a kid."

"All kinds of goodies, like a 21 year old encyclopedia, Myst, some miscellaneous productivity software, and OS 8.1. Sweet."

"Not the greatest CRT monitor, but it works. Hardly any evidence of use at all, apart from some very minor smudges on the screen."

"The 7100 doesn't get a lot of respect, but I think they're super-solid models. The original version came with 66 MHz Motorola PowerPC 601 chips, refreshed to 80 MHz in January 1995. The AV indicates that this model came standard with S-Video in/out."

Looking good for a computer old enough to order a drink.

"After pulling everything out and inspecting the motherboard, caps appear to be in good condition (or, at least, haven't started leaking yet). Still considering whether a preemptive re-cap is appropriate."

"Works like a charm, and oozes glorious, sweet nostalgia. Here's to another 21+ years."

When asked how much did it cost, the guy answered: "After talking with the guy for a while we settled on $50. I think he was happy it was going to a good home and not a landfill."

It's a +20 years old Mac. Not very useful as a computer today because even a mobile phone has more computer power but it's probably going to bring a nice price in eBay especially since it's in a good condition.

One mans junk is anothers treasure. I still have my first PC. It has an Intel Pentium "pro" series processor running at a whopping 200mhz. with 256megs of ram. It runs windows 2000pro and still works fine. It plays my old games and is a safe place to store certain "things" since it doesn't get hooked to the internet anymore.
