FS: SPARCstation IPX

Unread postby PiZzA EnGiNeEr » Sun May 20, 2012 3:27 pm

Hey guys I got a SPARCstation IPX in good shape for sale. I got this without the keyboard cable so I can't get this thing to boot because without the keyboard it defaults to the serial port (which I don't have the round cable for either). The system looks complete and when plugged in it powers up and sounds good considering it's about 20 years old. The hard drive sound quiet and so does the power supply. It has RAM, hard drive and floppy installed. Includes the keyboard minus cable, mouse with pad, power cable and 13w3 to VGA adapter. I'm almost positive it works but I can't fully test it with the missing cable. How about $40 shipped for this system? I'll pack it properly so the older plastics don't get damaged. Thanks for looking.

Curiosity got the best of me so I made a lousy keyboard cable out of a cat5 wire and it actually does boot up and work. Looks like the clock battery is dead but it does load up SunOS.

I'm tempted to buy this IPX just to reward you for that awesome kludgery to get the keyboard connected! ;)
