Bit too exotic for me, for the same reasons but I'd love to get a PEB with all the trimmings... In the UK.

yessss- I'd love a PEB too. cool picture!
unfortunately all my computer stuff in the office is from the late 90s onward- mostly some computer software, RAM DIMMs, maybe a switch box or something.
if you are in need of a 75 pound 22" CRT monitor, i have several of those too!

Problem with the MBX is that is takes a lot of desk space and once the novelty subsides it kind of loses its luster and it sits mostly unused.
So its mostly attractive to collectors...

Edit: also attractive to baseball fanatics

Got a couple offers on Facebook via PM. Might be able to move the MBX and get a TRS Model 1 with monitor and drives.
Also had a guy interested in parting with an Apple IIe Platinum with monitor.
In really want a Model 3 or 4 TRS, but we will see what happens.
Good luck! I hope you can get what you are looking for.

I sold my Model 4 a couple of years ago. Great machine and I did a lot of Turbo Pascal 3.0 under Montezuma CP/M with it. Not enough space unfortunately to keep it operational.
Again I definitely appreciate the technical aspects of the MBX, but I hate to have unused hardware sitting around. I just don't have the collector bug... Back in 1999, I had a complete MBX in box with all of the games, also in their original boxes. My kids had a blast with it, particularly Honey Hunt, but eventually moved on to other things. Ended up selling it before I moved to MN...

Curious as to what's the market value these days for one? I've got a boxed complete MBX system and was just recently considering parting with it..

My MBX is in pretty decent shape. It is yellowed a bit.
