I can say this freely in this forum (as opposed to AudioKarma) but there is a segment of audio enthusiast that isn't concerned with logic and facts. If its more expensive and has a good spiel then it must be better. I keep trying to explain how paying hundreds of dollars for a USB cable between the computer and DAC or a thousand dollars for a power cable is a waste but some people aren't hearing it. With USB it's digital data for heavens sake. Cable quality can't colour the sound. I often joked that I was going to make a bunch of money by selling an audiophile hard drive. Looks like sony beat me to it.

rats!  i'm hoping to get a NanoPEB since the stock PEBs are so friggin expensive.  i realllllly want a stock PEB to go with my collection (particularly the RAM and Disk Controller/Drive) but good grief!

 

I'd even happily pay shipping for the big ole metal brick to Missouri, but $300-400 bucks is a little out of my price range atm.

I got a chuckle when I saw << THIS BEIGE TI-99/4A >> as a buy it now for $349.99 + shipping.

What are the odds that the keyboard will not work properly?

but.. but.. it's new in box!  lol.   the beige ones if memory serves had some flaky keyboards even right out of the box.  :)

 

(not to mention that the black/silver model is infinitely better-looking!)

I almost want to buy it to burn it so the world has one less beige computer.

It's still a TI inside, but I get your point.
On the other side the planned successors were solely in beige, be it the 99/2, 99/5 or 99/8.

But not if pink and glittered. I guess in today's world there would most likely be one edition of that way. :-D

I was surprised that this ad ("Buy it Now" no less)for a PEB has lasted this long at such a low price. Heck it even got reduced!

 

At first I thought maybe it was in Europe, which would make shipping a tad expensive for North Americans, but nope, it's in California (and even shipping to Canada would only be $80!!)

 

Anyway, there's only 5 hours left, so I thought I'd mention it, since there are always folks around here looking for a PEB...not much in the way of cards with  (not even sure if it has a firehose and card) but it's a good start at a decent price if anyone is looking.

I saw it and would have loved to have it...but alas no room! My entire vintage computer collection is set up and connected in a closet (literally). I have learned to make excellent use of small spaces, but that PEB is a beast!

same here...I saw it when it was first listed a couple weeks ago, then when it scrolled off the "newest Listings" page, I just assumed it had sold with minutes.

 

When I saw it on the "ending soonest" this aft, I kicked myself for not mentioning it here sooner.
