    Default Anyone want my Beautifull PTP?

    I am downsizing my household for retirement and thought perhaps someone may be interested in my Power Tower Pro that I rebuilt using these forums in 2001.
    I have the original case, 15" monitor and mousepad! It still operates and I still use it occasionally. I also have an agfa scsi scanner that originaly retailed for $800 and came with a full version of photoshop 4.
    I would include the original 200mhz processor.
    As you can see, it has the ATR VR 128 video capture card also....so someone could use it for digitizing old camcorder videos.

    Hate to let the old girl go, but I'm retiring to a motor home and there's just no room for her. I hadn't thought of a price at all, have no idea what something like this would be worth and am more interested in finding her a good home where she would be appreciated. If you want to know her history, just do a search of the forums under "Tekcan" and you'll find everything you need to know about her build. the only other person I know who has one of these beasts running is Kaye.
    She's at system 8.6 and I would include all the legacy software of the time....Quark, Photoshop, Premiere, Director, Bryce, Poser...the list goes on and on, all of these softwares are no longer upgradeable and therefore considered "Legacy". If I err on this point, let me know, I would not unknowingly sell software that I shouldn't. All install disks would be included for EVERYTHING.
    I'm traveling at this time, so i may not get back to check the forum often, but will try to stay in touch at least once a week.

    Sorry I've been on the road, don't really want money, just someone to appreciate her.If you live somewhere between Wisconsin and Florida or near Texas or Oklahoma, anywhere in that triangle, we could arrange to meet. Don't know if her old electronics could take a beatin' in the mail.

    That is so funny, I have almost that exact setup. PTP with 500Mhz XLR8 card, two full-height Seagate 22gig drives, ATI 128VR, Initio SCSI card, Yamaha CD burner, Orig Teac CD... and other stuff but I guess good hardware was known to us through this forum many years ago. I still use it at my work for audio stuff, rock solid. I keep waiting for the power supply to go out or something, but it keeps on going, seagate drives and everything. Have you found a home for it yet?
