Used hardware bargain bin / yard sale

Friday, April 17th, 2015

ISG sits on a pile of older hardware that for various reasons cannot be used in our setup any more but that various people have expressed interest in and that still might be useful for certain scenarios (e.g. lab use or tinkering at home). We will therefore host two grab-your-used-piece-of-hardware sessions:

  • Window 1: hardware outside of the ETH live cycle, mainly old computers (PowerPC-Macs and PCs) and TFT monitors, free of charge for both ETH-internal and private use: Wed Apr 22 – Fri Apr 24 in HPT H floor
  • Window 2: not-quite-as-old hardware, mostly TFT monitors and printers, free of charge for ETH-internal use, prices for private use according to the rules: Wed Apr 29 and Thu Fri 30 in HPT H floor

As usual, some rules apply:

  • this goes to all D-PHYS members
  • no registration necessary. Just come by and take whatever is left.
  • all items come as they are. We do not have any details or specifications
  • there’s no warranty or service whatsoever. All devices have successfully been turned on, but that’s it
  • if your item doesn’t turn on, you can bring it back within 5 days and get a full refund (if it wasn’t free in the first place)
  • no OS, no software, no manual, no keyboard, often no cables. You get one piece of hardware. All HDs are blank
  • all proceeds go to the D-PHYS funds, not ISG
  • if you have no use for a computer without OS or software, don’t come shopping
  • bring cash
  • note that the printers are not meant to undermine the migration to the new printing system! We will not connect those printers to our old print server
