Well....it's two offers, not bids. The person may have offered $5. But since the shipping is $25 it's still a little crazy :-0.

boh... there are unlikely millions of 1530 mice, I would assume very little really considering they were only useful for GEOS (my reason for getting one at the time). Still, i have my doubt they could/should fetch ****loads of money

Here is another idiot selling on eBay - Amiga 600 with busted floppy Starting Bid AUD$200 (hey you can get A1200s for that price)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Commodore...item1c29b8ed88

It is nice to note that either the seller has collected this at a tip or has never heard of cleaning.. Filthy!

This seller must be kicking himself! I'd say that's shaved off at least $500.

No, not rare, 3000T is about 6000 units
3000T040 is about 80, those are 'rare' but not that rare, cause I have 1 of them

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
