There's one in Sweeden, with a French keyboard....

This is a re-listing. For whatever reason, it previously "sold" for $204......

Not cheap, but these machines are sort-of few. Here's one *very* attractive (except for price!) offering I was looking at. I thought it was grossly overpriced, but looked like a fantastic system....

While I was thinking about it (that's really "too much" if you ask me), it sold. I suppose it depends upon how badly you want it. If it was a super-nice system and he really wanted it, perhaps not such a bad deal.

Here's another Yankee offering from January, that failed to achieve its starting bid of $350 (still "too much")....

Good luck! You'll probably have better luck getting one on that side of the Atlantic. They're really cool. I have one but I haven't played with it much. It was considerably cheaper than these, but it's "kind of an old beater."

I try not to use ebay because most of the decent retro sellers left in disgust. Stuff is rarely as advertised so I would only collect in person. There was 1 in the UK with everything and clean looks for £180ish but I was still going to court trying to get wages owed by scum employers. Ho-hum

Amiga forumites help each other a lot in this scenario, not a lot of ST users here though.so a long shot.

That is the one I got as my 2nd Mega STe. I did not want to pay for the mono monitor and the shipping to go along with it.
I contacted him through ebay and then we spoke on the phone. Nice guy. I got the system for a good price.
Here is the USA these are very uncommon. They easily sell for 2 - 3 times what they sell for in Europe.
