Bad news... I fried my puppy...

Post by mamba » Sat Oct 21, 2006 3:48 am

Hi guys...
Bad news and bad news from Italy:
my beloved k6-II+ died, two weeks ago, during a storm.

I replaced it with a k6-III 450MHz@500MHz and I'm not complaining about it.

I would like to find a K6-III+ at a reasonably price. Checking Ebay they seem have gone mad: 130 bucks for a puppy.

Can anyone help to find it? :cry:

@Jim -

Fixed.

I wanted the links in blue, but it seems the forum doesn't like it when you add color to links...though you can colorize embedded links. :(

Code: Select all

[color=blue]http://www.jlmtech.net/catalog/index.php[/color] 

[color=blue][url=http://www.jlmtech.net/catalog/index.php]JLM Electronics[/url][/color]
http://www.jlmtech.net/catalog/index.php <- Doesn't work

JLM Electronics <- Works

@ Mamba : Did you contact them and enquire about it? I had a problem like that once w/ a K6-3+450ACZ I bought from them. Turned out it was sitting in the local post office there because of a customs issue. Got them to sort that out and got my "Guaranteed to do 600 Mhz" ACZ from them though it took a while. That is the one in SP3.

@ KachiWachi : Unfortunately the link to "Surplus Computers" doesn't specify what kind of K6-3+ they are selling. Could be either an ACZ or an APZ as far as I can tell.

I won an auction on Ebay and the seller was them. I paid throu Paypal, but the K6 never arrived.
Actually they send it to a wrong address and they knew that.

Fortunately Paypal has an insurance...

Jim, it says "2.0V Core". Wouldn't that mean ACZ?
