Actually, I've had great success at goodwill here on the east coast. i picked
up a complete platinum //e machine, a colour composite monitor with two
undisk 5.25 drives, a trs80 model 3, an IBM PC RT, and the rare <?> printer
attachment for my pc convertible and my uVAX II ! the pickings have been slow
lately, but its always a luck of the draw kind of thing. i usually hit the
stores about once a week and hope for the best. I regret not getting a plus/4
i saw in the original box last month.

<< Here's a hint for everyone...don't waste your time at Goodwill (well,
 usually). All the good stuff is at those for profit or non-chain thrift
 stores. Look for places like Thrift Town, Thrift Center, Thrift This,
 Thrift That, etc.
 I've heard that Goodwills take all the computer junk and auction it off.
 I never, ever find any computer stuff at Goodwills or Salvation Army's.
 I used to find stuff at the Salvation Army, and occasionally find some
 software (found an MSX cassette of all things at one recently) but never
 any hardware.
