Hi All,

Interesting thread. There are some crazy prices for some of these items - over $2000 for a C64...and someone paid for it! WOW.

Maybe not in the same league but this ebay auction I found is for a phase 5 233Mhz powerpc + 060 accelerator (128MB RAM) with AmigaOS4.0 Classic....

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Amiga-Cyb...item2c67214e26

Starting bid from 2000 Euros (AUD$2365)....

I know they are getting harder to get now but is this serious?

You can buy a brand new complete SAM460 or 2xSAM440 AmigaOne systems with AmigaOS4.1 running at a decent speed and a bunch of extra software for the starting money of just this ppc board...amazing.

Or maybe you are in the market for a Commodore 1571 disk drive, a bargain for USD$699....(AUD$670)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW...item3cc341e8e4

Final auction I found for today (from the same seller) is a Commodore 128D for the highly realistic asking price of USD$3200 (AUD$3064):

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW...item3cc341fd2f

Some of the other auctions from this seller have similar scary prices....

As an interesting comparison here is another Commodore 128D auction which includes a lot more and is a little bit cheaper currently at USD$103.50 at time of writing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Commodo...04%26rk%3D1%26

Hmmm, I wonder which one I would go for....

Final one - not a computer I know, but a sapphire, yours for only USD$19 Million Dollars. And they even throw in free shipping. Bargain. :-)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/101Cts-Huge-...item1c1fdd233e

I say it again - WOW.

Catcha,
Epsilon

Its only truely crazy if someone pays for it.

Personally all my Ebay sales are at reasonable prices.

On the up side, these are several good looking A1000 computers for sort of fair asking prices (NOT the $700.-- one!) Might be a good time to grab one. (Thee are on the U.S. ebay)

High crazy price.
Nothing retro is worth 2000.

Not even 850 which I heard a guy got for an acc. card.

This is nothing more than a money machine. No offence but ofc. people can't see that.

I feel bad for some of these sellers -- in particular, those who really don't know anything about what they're selling. They get some friend or family member who tells them that stuff from the 80s is worth thousands of dollars/pounds/euros and they believe them.

Where I lose my patience is when they cannot be bothered to do the real research themselves. I recently sold a Cisco PIX 501 with unlimited users for which we paid $850 about six years ago. They're all still good and usable units but quick research showed they couldn't sell for much over $150. Mine wound up selling for $50.
