Up to Auckland? You mean down to Invercargill? ;)

Opps, of course. That's even more of a mission! :)
Although...I will be down in Dunedin to see my daughters sometime later in the year. If it's still kicking around then maybe I could pick up. Don't hold it just for me though cause it's no sure thing.

Dang! I was going to say I'd be keen on that Atari 800XL as well - to add to the 600XL I have here. However looks like you've got a few people keen. :?

Who'd have thought the most pedestrian machine would generate the most interest? I was sure someone would want to vent my hands of the PowerMac 7600 with the Sonnet accelerator before the ye olde Atari ;)

Essentially if anyone's close enough to come get they get first dibs.

Did you ever get that AWE you were after xjas? I totally found among some other systems that I gave away, an SB32PnP.

Alright, a bit of inventory on my Apples:
The Classic II is in fully functional condition. It is running System 6 I believe.
The Plus is in unknown condition - I haven't been ballsy enough to fire it up.
The LC575 is a bit temperamental, I think the power supply is flakey. I think its' hard drive is toast too.
The Performa 580CD is in working condition, but the drive is a little sticky.
The PowerMac 7200/120 works perfectly.
The PowerMac 7300/200 is missing a power supply and hard drive.
The PowerMac 7600/200 is missing a power supply as well.
The other LCs are now spoken for basically.
I do have external drives from my IIgs that got stolen - a 5.25" and a 3.5".
I have a couple of ADB extended keyboards, and a couple of ADB mice.
Somewhere in my stash I did have a SCSI external CDROM drive, but bollocks if I know where it is now.

The rest of my Macs I'll be keeping - they're all a tad modern. A happy iBook G3 SE 466, and a Power Mac G4 400.

I'm sorted for now, thanks... I'm running an AWE64 Value from a friend overseas and a memory expansion adapter off this Tripod site that was last updated when the Y2K bug was a thing, so all good. I had a few too many Sound Blasters around at one point... :wink:

Beags! I just had a look at these old girls (they're currently being stored while I've been shifting)... it's NOT a Classic II. It's a regular Classic. Still interested?

Ohh no! Im sorry but a Classic "one" won't do the job. So... I am thinking about the LC575 or the Performa 580 CD. It will determine on cost of shipping and I will check with a couple of courier co.s to find that out. Back in touch soon.
