I have several systems available free for pickup in St. Charles, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis. The systems are:

NEC APC - This machine is complete but somewhat yellowed. It's an old 8086 CP/M system with two 8" floppy drives and a monochrome screen.

SGI Iris 4D/310VGX - This machine is in very good condition. It's the size of a large dorm fridge and includes several boards but no hard drives.

IBM 5363 System/36 - This is a small member of the IBM System/36 line. It is the size of a large PC tower and includes several hard drives.

IBM 5247 - I think this is a hard disk unit for the IBM System/23 line of computers. It may work with others as well.

Altos 1086 - This machine is the size of a large PC tower. This is an 80286 machine designed to run XENIX.

I also have two SGI 20" color monitors available.

If you are interested or have any questions you may contact me at

These machines are all quite large and are available for pickup only. If there are no takers you will probably see them on the Vintage Computer Market Place and then on eBay, they won't end up in the landfill. This shouldn't be considered a rescue, I'm just trying to make room for machines that I have more interest in.

No software or manuals are included with any of the systems.
