A few SE/30's I found on eBay

Recommended Posts

     Last week while I was on eBay looking for old macs I came across an auction with 20 different old Macintosh computers, most of them compact macs- and a few of them SE/30's.  The total for the auction was $640 and you had to go to Iowa to pick them all up! 

     Long and short of it nobody bought the lot.  However, I noticed that two of the SE/30's had video cards in them (or at least appeared to), specifically a Radius Pivot in one and a RasterOps ClearVue GS30.  So I contacted the seller and asked if I could buy just the two of them and have them shipped to me; she agreed!  Total price for both was $220 including shipping.

    Now I've bought SE/30's before that looked like they had video cards in them (i.e., the adapter was still sticking out of the back of it) and didn't.  Not so this time.  Both machines came with the cards they advertised!

     Both cards work, but of course the Radius won't display on a regular monitor without some modifications (which I think someone here successfully did?).  I will more than likely sell off the Radius card and keep the RasterOps, and when I'm done sorting everything out I'll probably have a parts SE/30 to sell as well.

Nice one. I  also picked up two SE/30s recently and it's great to see that both of yours have video cards, very cool. Unfortunately one of mine has no expansion card and the other has a network card.

 

Good luck with these, those cases need a good clean! :grin:

@joshc Hey, a network card is still a good find!  And certainly worth a few $$ if you want to sell it on eBay.  Of course, it would be lovely to buy an SE/30 and find a Daystar accelerator plugged into the CPU slot!

@JT737 I think you gave me some good luck, because that's exactly what happened to me with my last haul...one of the SE/30s I picked up has a Daystar accelerator in it!!
