Looks legit to me. He is a local business (to me) with a company registration on the listing. A proper auction with a 99p start.

I don’t mean the seller but the bidders - that is a crazy amount of money for what it is, even given the current high prices these are fetching at the moment. I would have said £500 tops.
I keep having a look to see if it gets re-listed due to a non payer.

I made enough money buying those, refurbing them and selling them to buy an immaculate, unused Model B. :D

No - only last year you could sometimes buy them for £100 or less and sell them done up (cost of parts around £30) for around £200. Now it is rare to get untested ones for less than £200.
Wish I had kept the ones I did last year to sell now. :cry:

If you're going to sell a collectors item, at least get someone to proof read the description...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Early- ... 0010.m2109

This Apple II is a working piece of history. All games are fully functional, a collector's dream. All keys work. This system is fully operational. The open games I played on the computer and they work well. This Apple II is adult owned and comes from a smoke free home. Power Supply #8A110408 serial # 1A2S2-158367 Model #A2S2064. On the motherboard itself it states Apple 1982. Everything is original as purchased. Thanks for looking. THIS COMPUTER WILL BE WELL PACKED WHEN SHIPPED

Apple IIe facts: The Apple IIe is arguably the most successful computer Apple has ever produced. The IIe was introduced on January 1983 originally selling for $1395, and included the same 1.02 MHz 6502 processor as the and The Apple IIe included the new ProDOS operating system designed from the ill-fateds SOS, and Applesoft BASIC burned into the 32k ROM. The IIe contained 64k RAM built-in, and allowed up to 128k RAM using the 80 column card which allowed 80 column text and an additional 64k RAM (much more RAM could be added later via third party hardware). The IIe also allowed upper and lower case letters be used allowing full functionality of the Shift and Caps Lock keys. The main goal of the IIe was succeed where the Apple III had failed, create a professional computer for use in business. It served its purpose well, and also became abundant in schools and homes. The next of several versions of the IIe was one with a sharper display (560x192 black and white, 140x192 in 16 colors). In March 1985 came the IIe enhanced, which was basically upgrading a IIe to standards, including a new 65C02 processor, character generator, new ROM, and 2 more ROM chips for Applesoft BASIC and the monitor. In 1987, the final major revision, the IIe extended, was released. The IIe extended most noticeably added a numeric keypad to the built-in platinum keyboard. Other new features included a miniaturized 80 column card and several internal memory enhancements. Due to the fact that the IIe could be upgraded to a or a and more compatible with original Apple II software than even the Apple II compatible clones, the bulk of Apple II software (95%) works on an enhanced IIe might explain why it was such a favorite among businesses, schools, and home computer users. All models were discontinued in November 1993 for a combine total of almost 11 years on Apple's production line, outliving every other model including the discontinued the year before thanks for looking and have a good day..

I lament the prices paid for Acorn stuff and come to think of it HP, Texas and Sinclair calculators. It is getting way OTT. :(

Indeed. You can get a 'real' BBC for that money, nicely refurbed and upgraded.

Does this Epson PC look a reasonable collector's price? I'd say on the edge of probably not: https://www.ebay.com/itm/EPSON-Q301A-PC ... 100623.m-1

Isn't the software obsession akin to rare record collecting? That makes things a bit more understandable. I've bought a nice few boxed things and they've made my micros feel all the more golden but never for really silly money.

This sounds like a steal (from the sellers perspective, that is): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/IOMEGA-100Mb ... 3503258108

Probably a typo... :roll:
