Picked up one of these NES tv dealios off craigslist for $45. Came with super mario bros, the lady said she has a box of games somewhere and if she finds it anytime soon she'll call me up and give them to me. Also got Castlevania: SOTN for $15

Goodwill, got a physical copy of Orange Box for $2. Unsure of what my "final price" on this will be since most FPS makes me motion sick; how much Dramamine will I pop like candy to try and get through Portal?

Also got the Gameboy Player disc for GC for $2. Already BIN'd a loose GBP system on eBay for $2.90

Last week I grabbed a slot-load iMac G3 DV400 for $20 at Savers. After I got it working it turned out to be one of the better ones! :D I did some ghetto-testing* at the store and figured out it wouldn't boot because the hard drive was dead, so I upgraded it with a spare I had around. Threw some PC133 memory into it, installed OS 9 and OS X, and it's been working fine since! Yay I can finally use all the software from those magazine discs I collected 10 years ago! (Apparently these usually go for more than double that at thrift stores, even more on eBay, but this one had a very fixable simple problem that the clothes-tagging old ladies in the back room didn't understand so they gave it a "damaged goods" price. It was only there for a couple days according to the sticker!)

Specs:
Slot-loading iMac G3 DV 400
DVD/CD-ROM
400 mhz PowerPC 750 (G3)
80 GB HD (Upgraded from the stock 6 gig, which was completely dead)
512 MB RAM (Not sure how much I got it with because I replaced both sticks first thing, but it came from the factory with 64)
Mac OS 9.2.2 / OS X 10.4.11 Tiger dual-boot (with Classic; it will run Solitaire games from 1984 side by side with Opera 10.6)
2x USB 1.1 buses
2x FireWire
Latest firmware
15" CRT display
Blue USB iMac keyboard (acquired a couple years ago)
Logitech 2-button scroll mouse THAT WORKS PROPERLY WITH BOTH BUTTONS AND THE WHEEL IN OS 9 AND X so don't give me that :wtf:

Now comes the hard part: making room for it on my desk!

* I need to remember to bring a cheap multitool with me when I go junk shopping. Testing a TiVo using twist ties as an RF cable, opening an iMac's service hatch using a lamp cord as a screwdriver... It's annoying. TO HARBOR FREIGHT!

@wallydawg: Good find on the Orange Box, just cross your fingers that the CD key hasn't already been activated on Steam!

Not exactly a garage sale find, but for the tidy sum of 400$ (split 50/50 with my dad) we bought this lovely little project, a 1962 lambretta LI125
Image
It will be receiving a full makeover by my neighbor and myself, he will be helping me with the engine stuff (not that i really need it, but he knows more about small engines than i do) and i will be doing a mini restoration including cleaning every square inch of the scooter and repainting everything that needs it.

Once i take some better pictures (this one is terrible) i'll start a thread about it in F42 or something :lol:
