I'm sure an Apple II Europlus is very rare and interesting, but just look at the state of the case!

Does that mean if you don't look at all the pictures, he won't send all the parts to you? ;)

There are more from him...maybe he has a problem with his decimal points!
They all seem to be BIN with Best Offer...maybe offer him something that they are actually worth.

This one seems more reasonable from the same seller. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Long-STD-PS2 ... SwXxha-1Hk

His auctions are very silly! :shock:

Buy it now: £80 plus a tenner postage.

It’s got no cpu, it’s knackered with battery acid damage and the keyboard’s shot.

Seems like good value!

Might need some significant work to repair if CJE are selling it as non-working. They certainly have the kit to have fully tested it before sale, so when it says not working it probably is...

Only in the Retro Age is it feasible to pull that kind of stunt.

And to think when clean, good condition Commodores started ending at £40, I thought the days of daylight robbery were on the way.

But absolutely nobody is going to pay £1000 for one used VHS tape, are they? Nobody could be *that* desperate! Does the seller seriously think anyone's going to buy at that price? It's insane!

Maybe they are meant to be £2.29 each?
I never quite understand how people who do this can have nearly 2000 positive feedbacks? Crazy.

Maybe it's some kind of weird tax dodge thing? This item you listed for £1000 only sold for a fiver, so you've 'lost' £995 you can offset against tax, that sort of thing?

I consider this Zonal tape a LOLPRICE too, as it's so cheap.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zonal-675-Au ... SwidFawVsU

Maybe the tape's worn but people with a machine ought to grab one anyway to find out.

No backup in less than half a minute is worth over £30 grand.

You can spend that money on this real piece of history and have plenty of change:

What an intriguing bit of kit, even though it does look like a vending machine crossed with some 1960s EMI recording gear. (Though I bet LGR could play Commander Keen on it. he seems to be able to with anything else.)

Now these pictures are going to wipe awhile after the bidding ends.
