Place your bets on this Apple II

A very nice Rev 0 Apple II on eBay.
Already way above my budget, I am thinking it will go north of $25 000. Place your bets on the final price.


Edit: The original auction was ended, then re listed. No idea why,

Nice collection started in Tukwilla

On Craigslist today, a nice set of Atari, Commodore and TI 99 computers.

Nice collection of clean and working computers from the 8-bit era. Includes:

Commodore 64 and VIC-20 with 1541 disk drive, cassette drive, 1702 monitor, and a handful of cartridges for each system.

Atari 800 (48K model) with 1050 disk drive and some carts.

Texas Instruments TI-99/4A with some cartridges.

I tested all the above and they seem to be working fine. One exception: the space bar on the Atari 800 is unresponsive. Power supplies and signal cables for all computers and drives are included, as are most of the manuals. There's a couple of joysticks for the Commodore/Atari machines that work. The TI joysticks, however, don't work. The included A/V cable works with all 4 machines and the monitor.

There are a few other bits included (Commodore 1520 plotter, Atari 850 interface 410 tape drive and 1027 printer, some copied disks, etc) that I didn't get around to testing and may be incomplete.

$200 firm. Pick-up only in Tukwila.
