@BillC - For a collection like this i'm suprised there aren't more lol.

Another thing is that i could probably fly there and back to pick it up for less than the postage lol :)

Poster just killed the auction. Last bid was for 4500.00 US that I saw. Wonder what it finally sold off ebay for?

Obviously.

The "orgasmic" bidding just lasted for the last 48-hours (pretty stupidly, with NINE FUC_ING DAYS TO GO!), instead of everyone holding their "hypotalamus" impulse, and starving the auctioner, until the very last day, when you really strike (at your discretion).

Talk about terribly poor bidding tactics & strategy...

...Either that, or someone there took a train, traveled to the auction's owner home, and left the cash at his door.

All i can say is if an agreement was made off line then it must of been one msssive amount offered.

@Faicuai - I agree about the bidding, best tactic is to wait until the last few seconds before striking so you keep the bit low.

Beautiful collection. Not much into XL stuff, but was searching for 1090 things and found this link. Thought I would post the ebay information for people reading this later.

------------------


Atari Prototype Collection
Atari 1450XLD, 1400XL, 1200 and Atari 1090 XL-Expansion System!

Unique opportunity! Up for auction is a collection of Atari prototypes of the following systems:


  • Atari 1450XLD - never released officially


  • Atari 1400XL - never released officially


  • Atari 1200 - Atari 1200XL prototype


  • Atari 1090 XL Expansion System - Never officially released

Experts know that such a collection will probably not be available in the near future. The units are in good cosmetic condition (see pictures), but they are prototypes which show traces of use and the plastic parts not always fit perfectly. The1450XLD has a 1450-motherboard built in, the keyboard is not connected since the cable is too short, here is probably a normal 1200XL-keyboard installed. The floppy is also not connected because the floppy controller is missing. Probably the device was only for exhibition purposes or photo shootings. The Atari 1400XL has a 1450-motherboard built in. The Atari 1200 housing has no surface-structure. The 1090 XL Expansion System is even with the cover (the few that leaked out are usually without cover). The devices are untested and I do not give any guarantee that the units are functional. Serious interested parties may inspect the equipment. For any questions or offers please mail! (scroll down for pictures)

This is a private sale without any warranty.

Atari Prototypen Sammlung
Atari 1450XLD, 1400XL, 1200 and Atari 1090 XL-Expansion System!

Einmalige Gelegenheit! Zur Auktion steht eine einzigartige Atari-Prototypensammlung bestehend aus folgenden Systemen:


  • Atari 1450XLD - Nie offiziell erschienen


  • Atari 1400XL - Nie offiziell erschienen


  • Atari 1200 - Prototyp des Atari 1200XL


  • Atari 1090 XL Expansion System - Nie offiziell erschienen

Kenner wissen dass eine solche Sammlung vermutlich so schnell nicht wieder angeboten wird. Die Geräte befinden sich in gutem optischen Zustand (siehe Bilder), es handelt sich aber um Prototypen bei denen Gebrauchsspuren vorhanden und auch die Plastikteile nicht immer 100% passgenau sind. Im 1450XLD ist ein 1450-Motherboard verbaut die Tastatur ist nicht angeschlossen, da das Kabel zu kurz ist, vermutlich ist hier eine normale 1200XL Tastatur verbaut worden. Die Floppy ist ebenfalls nicht angeschlossen, da der Floppycontroller fehlt. Wahrscheinlich war das Gerät nur für Messezwecke oder Fotoaufnahmen gedacht. Der Atari 1400XL hat ein 1450-Motherboard verbaut und ist bis auf das fehlende Typenschild komplett. Der Atari 1200 ist ebenfalls komplett. Das Gehäuse dieses Geräts hat noch keine Struktur wie die Seriengehäuse sondern die Oberfläche ist Glatt. Das 1090 XL-Expansion System ist sogar mit Deckel (die wenigen die es gibt, sind meist ohne Deckel). Die Geräte sind ungeprüft und ich gebe auch keine Funktionsgarantie. Mir waren die Geräte immer zu schade zum benutzen. Ernsthafte Interessenten können die Geräte aber gerne besichtigen. Für weitere Fragen oder auch Angebote bitte Mailen!

Es handelt sich hierbei um einen Privatverkauf ohne jegliche Gewährleistung.
