Re: MacIvory 3 temptation sittin' on the dock of the 'Bay

If you mean me, I actually already have one. It cost me about $4000 to acquire, and eventually another $2000 (!!!!) to rehabilitate everything. It is easily the most expensive vintage item I own (the POWER6 was $10K, but that was bought as a relatively new item) and it was a colossal pain in the butt to get everything working.

It's a MW3 with 8MW of RAM running Genera 8.3 with Y2K patches.

I thought I would do more with it than I'm doing with it.

I remember the thread, just wanted to let you know there was another one available. How does it compare to yours?

Same specs, except that being in a Q700 it must be the later revision (earlier MI3s would not work in '040 systems).

Symbolics-MacIvory-model-2-upgrade-with-FPA-2-6-MW-NuBus-mem

Cool stuff, ISTR there being another one that came out of the woodwork in between these two. Does your 3 have the NuBus bottlenecked expansion memory moved on board?

Wow! The first one went for $6,882.00!
