Haha, and you'd have to be minted to be able to afford them too! :D

I guess Steve1989MRE would't think twice about the best before date, he'd probably think these are fresh mints!

Mints have nothing on this lot!

AC3751EB-5BF7-42C2-8511-D035E8DA722E.png

A good condition, fully refurbed +3 is worth up to £150. So I make this lot worth around £600 tops. It was sold as untested. :shock:

The seller provides photos of everything except the actual item for sale.
It makes you wonder who these people are bidding on this.

I doubt you'll beat this optimistic price for an Amstrad CPC664.

This lot look worth a punt:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125-BBC-Micr ... SwNG5e51Um

Could be some "finds" in there. If not then a lot of spare discs. 5 bids so far (currently @ £13.50), only 2 days left. I wonder if anyone on stardot is bidding?

Edit: Just spotted on one of the photos, 2nd Processor Elite - not the original disc though.

I think there's history with this seller. He still seems to be insisting that his memory module was the ultra-rare shared memory module in spite of all the evidence to the contrary. On the other hand, it might all be done for laughs :roll:

Hang onto that copy of Killer Gorilla, somebody has paid a record $114,000 for a Super Mario Bros. video game.

My most expensive video game in the 90's was a SNES game, Chrono Trigger (used) for about $128 (incl. p&p)...

It came form the US...

There are lots of 8271s at this price or even lower, but, unlike this listing from £ittle Diode, they tend to come with a free Beeb.

£600 for a basic A440. Looks like it could even be Arthur. :lol:

I wasn't aware the 440 was ever sold without a winchester controller on the board, nevermind dual floppy. Something doesn't smell quite right there. Certainly wasn't sold with that mouse.

Hmm, very fishy, if it was an A440 it would have two BNC's on the back, that's an A3xx board.
