I could be tempted to take the 5 1U cases off your hands. Are they still available?

This stuff is heading off to the recycling unless anyone wants them.

12" Apple Powerbook G4 (model A1010). No power adapter.
Could be useful for someone who still needs a PowerPC CPU.

12" IBM Thinkpad 240. Celeron M CPU, 128MB RAM, 12GB hard drive,
1 PCMCIA, 1 USB, 1 PS2, 1 VGA, 1 serial, 1 RJ11 modem, no ethernet.
No power adapter, but uses standard IBM 16V. Very light. Could be
useful for someone needing a basic Linux machine, or for serial or
network diagnostics.

5x 1U Acme generic rack mount cases with mounting for 1 PCI card.
Suitable for micro-ATX motherboards and low profile RAM. They have
motherboards with Celeron 1GHz CPUs and 128MB RAM. existing CPU fans
have all failed or developed faults. The PSUs work, but are not likely
to be able to power a big modern CPU. Low power CPUs might be OK with
a good heatsink and fan.

I may also have about four IBM xSeries 206m tower servers available in
the next few weeks. These are all in good working order, have PentiumD
CPUs, 512MB or 1GB RAM, at least 2x 80GB drives, space for 4 hot swap

Pick up from Chiswick near the railway station.
If anyone is interested then let me know by private email.
