Its not only with 1200XL same with 130XE!

You can buy it for less than 150USD.

Or look at Atari Falcon 030 price.

I think some people are buying vintage computers

as old paintings or old cars.

As investment.

People who are not 8bit users at all.

 

So why I am happy with 1088XEL, EclaireXL and similar 

projects. They will be backup for normal people in 5 years

when prices will be very high.

Makes me sick. Wish I had bought a few more a few years ago.

Me, I'm just happy I already have my 50 plus 2 1200XLs now. I would never have been able to do it at current prices. o.O

Tim you and Bob Woolley need to get together to see who has the most 1200XLs, although I think he still has you beat. But you might win on how many are still in their case.

As far as I'm concerned, Bob is the KING when it comes to 1200XLs. I'm just an admirer of his who hopes to be able to carry on the 1200XL tradition with my microscopic fraction of his experience, insight, and know-how. Bob's a one-of-a-kind and always will be.

 

Having said that, you're probably correct in saying that I have more systems that are still in their case, lol!

If that truly was in mint condition as in never opened, and with a pristine box, then maybe... just maybe it would be worth that asking price. But the one pictured... NO.

I don't know. That one looks much nicer than most of the ones out there. Box is in great shape.
