Hope you have a CGA monitor ;)

Except it's so ugly/boring. Atari had Ira Velinski designing all these cool ST cases, and their PC looks like something made on the first day of CAD class.

At that price, you'd probably pick up a Falcon. Infinitely more desirable and usable.

Don't get me wrong though. It's certainly a rare piece. Now you need the rest of the PC line. :)

Latest snags include a NIB 600XL (from the same seller that Wood used) , and a Megafile 30 for my 1040 STE. The Megafile seems to have survived its treck across Europe and is working (touch wood and cross toes) . Brings back some memories.

It should be ebay policy to prefix all auction titles with the word RARE! It would save sellers a lot of trouble. :|

Yep, but then sellers would start using other terms such as "obscure" or "incredibly unique" :D

Or "MINT", which is often used when it shouldn't.

You're much too generous. I think they just *put* it in an Atari box.

There was an auction a little while back for a similar box, suggesting sellers do that. Let me see....

Ah, here it is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll

2 more 400s for $5! One is fairly clean and worked after reseating the chips. It has the Sally CPU board. The other is filthy and not yet tested.

Cleaned, reseated, tested, works!

Who would buy an 800 for $162.50 plus shipping?
I guess that German buyer really wanted one.

Just came in the mail today -- a recent software acquisition for $25 (not eBay).

All software and instructions included, except for "Squish'em", which was just the box and instructions. There are several sealed titles as well.

Also there are two full copies of "The Action Toolkit" (-box), one being covered by the disk.


Carts:

Disks:

GameStar + Unboxed.jpg

ESI.jpg

Epyx, etc..jpg

Atari, Artworx, MMG, OSS.jpg

Infocom, Adventure, etc..jpg

Keypuch, ScreenPlay, Syncro.jpg

Now to test all this stuff... :D
