that auction company DoveBid will be
various older Macintosh hardware; remnants that Apple has cleaned out of its own warehouse inventory. Apple does so periodically to make room for newer hardware.
The equipment is broken into 20 separate lots, almost all of which include multiple quantities of the same device. Products range from Power Mac G4s with 466, 533 and 733MHz processors, Apple Studio Displays, a large selection of iMacs with processor speeds from 400 to 600MHz and in colors ranging from Indigo to Snow to Flower Power. A large collection of iBooks are on the block, along with more than three dozen 5GB iPods.
Although each lot is mainly composed of multiple machines, bidders can lay their hands on specific items within each lot. So if bidding on more than a dozen Snow-colored 500MHz iMacs is more than your checkbook can bear, you should be able to tailor your bid accordingly.
The auction kicks off tomorrow, Friday, May 31, 2002 at 9:00 am (Pacific Time) and ends at or after 1 pm that same day. So if you’re interested in picking up some older Apple hardware at a potentially good price on auction, make sure to keep the page bookmarked.
