Is this equipment any good?

Hi all,
I'm currently studying for CCNA R&S (have my CCENT) and one of my colleagues is selling the following:
PIX 515, (2) 2501 routers, a 2691 router. (2) 2610 routers and (1) 3600 series router (unsure of the exact model number) for $100.

Is this a good deal and how far will this equipment get me? Will it suffice for getting the CCNA R&S or perhaps NP ?

    Don't do the 2501's. They're really, really old! I think mostly all of it is old, too. I would stay away and try to get 1841 routers.

    How much are you looking to spend on lab gear? you can do the ICND2 in packet tracer/gns3 100%

    Pixs are useless
    2501s useless. can only run 12.3 of the ios. test is for version 15. it's is two releases behind. yes, you can do quite a few things with them, but not enough to pass an exam.
    2610, same thing.

    2691 it is alright if it is running 12.4 version of the ios
    only 3640s that are running 12.4 are worth getting.

    most of it is two old to be of value. it is like buying a pc that is running XP

    much better equipment, too bad you'd have to pay shipping
