Terms and Conditions


Select from the following:


Minimum Order
Processing fees, time, and fuel costs contribute to now requiring a minimum amount for an order (currently $10.00 for U.S. and $20.00 for other countries).
We NO LONGER SHIP anywhere within the State of Colorado due to burdonsome sales tax collecting and reporting, but you can have a local friend pick something up and mail it to you if you can’t make it to the Denver area.

Canceled Order
Orders that are cancelled after payment is made (you changed your mind) will be refunded minus 3.5% for processing fees.

Product Condition
Apple Rescue Of Denver (AROD) provides rare and obsolete vintage computers and parts to our customers. With rare exception, these products are USED. Products physical and mechanical characteristics are tested, photographed and described as accurately as possible. These great vintage products are as much as 40 or more years old and are still going strong! They come from individuals, collectors, repair shops, schools and business environments. While they have been cleaned to the best of our ability, they may have scuffs and scratches, discoloration, stains, permanent marker, stickers, tears or highlighting! It is also possible that there may be some odors – smoke, pet or other smells from a closed environment, etc that we are unable to detect but that you may be sensitive to. Cosmetic issues, defects and any other known or detected issues will be noted in the product description, please read carefully. Most items will not be individually shown due to time constraints. Representative photos will be shown, then variations available to add to cart. Please ask for an exact description if it is a concern.

Note that all 68xxx (pre PowerPC) logic boards have been, are, or will be soon experiencing capacitors leaking. Apple Rescue of Denver does not currently offer board level repairs. Exterior cleaning, testing and swapping components, such as floppy drives or hard drives if needed, is all that is performed prior to being made available. If the case has needed to be opened and the capacitor problem is noticeable at that time, it will be indicated in the description. Unless otherwise indicated, no other repairs have been performed. It is always possible that board levels repairs have been done prior to coming into inventory. WARRANTY on these Macs is limited to working when you have received it only. It may be too late for working so warranty is limited to being as stated. May or may not boot when you receive it.
