I just wanted to know because my friends uncle might have one.
The thing is that when his uncle got it(this was in the 80's not recently) he played it for six hour straight. Apparently there were some sounds or somehing(never explained what they were) and it smelled funny whenever his uncle played. Afterwards his parents got so pissed at him for playing six hours they put it in the microwave......
My friends uncle used to live at my friends house and supposedly he left it there.
So i asked my friend to try and find or ask his uncle where he might of left it. The next time i come over to his house i'll bring my digital camera and see if he found if and post a pic.
NOTE: I'm not saying there is one. my friend just thinks it might be one because he recognizes the picture on this site

Funny sounds? Smelled funny when played?? Even the toaster couldn't destroy it??? :?
Could it be similar to this NES?

Only person who could have taken that auction seriously is the guy selling the Cosmos.

10,000 20,000 50,000 might as well have been a million because no one will bid.

I have one. I'd say it's worth around $2,500 generally depending on condition. I've seen one go for as little as $850 but that was a while ago.

My friend's Uncle Gary took him out back to his special tool shed and "gave it to him" .....and then told him to "walk it off"

...yeah sorry to this DAY I still do not know what that's all about. I'm afraid to ask.

Anyone want me to post some really nice big 2700 pics?

I have one too...in mint and superb shape....

Let me put it to you this way, I did not pay $14,999 for it.

It looks nice between my Imagic Previewer and Parker Bros Previewer

I don't like to brag, but I think you are right, it would be a shorter list (stuff I do not have). ;)

So I'll never have a room of doom (cart or real life) but I'll be happy with my lil corner of assorted non-boxed stuff :P

So do you have a boxed 2700? If you do, then I am leaving for good

So I guess you'll have to wiat and buy the box off of Wiz, cause I'm sure he has one if anyone does.

And I'm sure that the 2700 has many other pretty systems to keep it company

I don't believe there is a box for the 2700 and if anyone has it, it's Curt.
