You found the lowest priced one that sold, and doesn't include a drive, and it's still over $100 with shipping.
I'm not saying he should pay $150, I just said that's the going rate for auctions.
I just don't agree. There aren't a lot of sold II+'s to begin with - mostly because sellers seem to have delusions of grandeur when it comes to these machines. They see the prices for very early II's and think their II+ must be worth some amount close to that and price them accordingly, and there they sit. I only see three other II+'s that have sold *at all* on Ebay in the last 3 months, and that's not for lack of availability. There are plenty up there right now. They don't sell at those prices.
The IIe is a more capable machine and I found two in better shape that sold for between $60-$100, one with an extra drive. There's no reason anyone in their right mind should purchase a II+ over a IIe if the IIe is cheaper, so paying more than $100 for a II+ is not something I would ever advise doing given that you can get a IIe for less.
And these are Ebay prices. If somebody's trying to sell something locally, they're going to have to accept less money because they're selling to a much smaller market.
It would be a little different if this was a complete machine in good condition. It's a bare unit with one drive and at least one broken key. If it was complete and in good shape, then maybe I could see $150.
