Re: Hp Alpha server ES45 quote needed

You will not be able to give these away. They are worthless to a business.

Desupported hardware , on an OS that has been discontinued running as fast a a PC 6 years ago.

The only quote I can think of is one by P.T. Barnum.

for e-waste, i guess it is normal to charge a small amount to get rid of the equipment. some companies take them away for free and try to get value from the salvage.

Re: Server related Business

ebay.com shows lots of offers but no bidders.

I guess there is a market for spare-parts.

It's a piece of history to own, along with an SGI Onyx ;-)

What kind of servers do you want to sell/trade?
