The university will sell off some of its older equipment during a computer auction at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Teague Special Events Center. The event will be open to the entire community.

Michael Ortiz, a tech in the Office of Information Technology, said the auction will include computers used for several years by faculty and staff members on campus. The equipment being auctioned will include MacBooks, MacBook Pros and iMacs. Attendees will also be able to bid on PowerMacs, eMacs, iBooks, PowerBooks, Dell desktops and dozens of notebook computers.

Ortiz, junior IT major from Monahans, said the computers have been reimaged and loaded with factory-installed operating systems. All the computer equipment will be set up in the Teague Center by 11 a.m. on the day of sale for viewing, he said. The university will accept cash or checks, but no credit cards.

The IT department also will conduct a drawing after the auction for a 2.8 GHz Dell computer with 1Gig of memory, LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse and Windows XP. All registered attendees, regardless of how much they spend, can enter the drawing, Ortiz said.

“At the end of the auction we draw a name whoever it is, who get the computer for only $1,” Ortiz said.

Paige Buck, administrative coordinator in the IT office, said the proceeds of the sale will support the university.

“We sell not only computers, but also projectors, printers and sometimes we also sell iPhones and TVs,” said Buck, sophomore business and marketing major from New Braunfels. “We also have Facebook page for the event, and the event is great for business, home or family.”
