Random Request: Does anyone have any IBM RT gear?

Unread postby duewix » Tue Aug 09, 2011 6:49 pm

Hey everyone,

I am on a silly personal quest to get my hands on an IBM RT for purely hobbyist/collector purposes. Anyone know where I could get my hands on anything close? I have just seen some turn up on ePay but the prices are outrageous. I live in the Pittsburgh area.

Funny, I was surprised to see somebody offering a bunch of PC/RT gear in PA just last month on the classiccmp list. (see post here) Probably gone, but you never know...

I was pretty seriously after that collection, but I never got the guy to reply to my enquiries. So I don't know what the status is.

Yes, I also saw the classiccmp post but he never replied to my emails. We will see...I once had someone accept an offer I made for an Onyx2 on craislist some 2 months later. If I ever here from the guy, I will let you know...it seems like more hardware than one person can handle!
