I'm working on a commercial product that will require an inventory of 50 or more Epia 5000 (533Mhz version) motherboards. These are a few years old and are difficult to find.
This question is to some of you who regularly sell in this forum (digitalww, et al): Where are good places to locate older hardware like this? Do you guys get most of your inventory through auctions?
And don't say Ebay.
with VIA Eden 533MHz Fanless Processor
AC97 Audio, 3D Video (8MB) & 10/100 LAN
TV-Out Ports support up to 800x600 Resolution
1 x PCI & 2 x ATA100
1 x Serial, 1 x Parallel & 4 x USB 1.1 Ports
2 x PC133 Memory Slots up to 1GB
VIA PLE133/VT8231 Chipset
I can have 50 of these to you in a week. Price would be 6810.35 Shipped, after tax. Thats $136.00 per board. If you purchased 100 boards, I could get the price down to $117 per board, after tax, shipped.
Let me know.
I can get the 8k's for $85 each retail (which are fine since they are fanless). I'm not really looking for dealers, but public auctions, distributors, or whoever else you use to find hardware like this. I know I can find these for ~$75 a piece at this quantity. PM me if you don't want the info public.
