King of the hill

I’m donating my old computer stuff that I never use to Computer Heaven, a local computer-recycling place.

Here’s the whole stack, plus my macbook (which I am not giving them):
a lot of computers

Some statistics might be in order.

StatisticAll The Sun ComputersThe PCsThe MacBook
Disk Space2,800MB160,000MB240,000MB
Memory (RAM)272MB1024MB2048MB
Clock cycles (in MHz)337.624004800

Power Consumption~3kW~1kW0.085kW
Weightabout 2000 lbsabout 200 lbsabout 7 lbs

To be picky, this isn’t really everything — it’s just all I could move in my spare time over a couple of days. I have about 4 more rackmount machines to bring up once my offsite hosting is up and running, and of course, that would leave the Mac no longer quite on top.

Still, it’s humbling.

  1. Wow, that's slightly more computer gear than I tossed/gave away when I moved out of Santa Clara in June (I had more stuff overall if you count the non-computer stuff). By the way, you might want to try the 'free' section on Craigslist. It's amazing the kind of old crap people will come get if it is free. I got rid of almost half my stuff that way.
