Library Hosts Used Computer Sale

The Rochester Hills Public Library will be hosting a public sale for both electronic equipment and an assortment of other hardware from around the library on April 1 and 2 (next Monday and Tuesday) from 10:00 am till 8:00 pm located in the Library’s Multipurpose Room.  “As we update equipment to handle an ever growing computer demand we find we have equipment that will function well for home use, but can’t provide the heavier computing needed by the library,” said public library director Christine Lind Hage.

The list of IT equipment up for sale includes:

Desktop PCs or laptops:
13 – HP dc 5100 Pent 4’s assorted ram amounts
20 – HP dc 5700 Pent D’s assorted ram amounts
23 – HP dc 5800 Core 2’s assorted ram amounts
1 –  HP 4300
2 – HP mini 5102
1 – HP 2140
1 – Dell dimension 4100
1 – Dell Latitude d505
1 – IBM g40

Networking equipment:

1 – Cisco 3600
2 – Cisco Catalyst 2900

2 – HP Proliant DL360
2 – HP Proliant DL380

1 – Dell Power edge 2800

2 – HP laserjet 4000n
1 – HP laserjet 1022n
2 – Lexmark e240n

“I realize the list sound pretty technical, but basically this is a good opportunity for students to get their own computers for homework for about $50,” said Hage.  A keyboard and mouse will be included with each desktop.

All of the computers have been wiped clean so buyers will have to install their own operating system and software.

There will also be an assortment of other electronic equipment including scanners, cabling, a few shelving units etc. All equipment will be sold as is. “Knowledgeable staff members will be on location to answer questions,” said Derek Brown, director of IT at the Library.

The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester off of University Drive and 3 blocks east of Main Street.  The library is open from 9 – 9 Monday through Thursday and 9 – 6 on Fridays and Saturday and from 1 – 6 on Sundays.
