Where to get a system besides eBay?

Recommended Posts

Besides eBay are there other places I can buy a working system? Are there any "dealers" anymore (maybe folks that buy/find non-working ones, fix, test and sell them)?

Last time I was on Best’s site (Monday) it seemed to indicate there were some refurb 800Xls available. I also still see systems from time to time on Kijiji. A local classified site. Maybe Craig’s list in the USA?

I'm sure a number of forum members have working used systems available.

 

I have an 800XL, a 600XL (w/64K memory and monitor port installed), and a XEGS available, as well as I could make a 400 available.  At a point I'll have an 800 available as well.

 

I also have 810, 1050, and XF551 disk drives available.

 

PM me if you are interested in any of the above.

I left ebay when they dissallowed the use of foreign credit cards. 😞

 

Finding used stuff became hard!

@Schadret depends on where you are, a little.

 

Be warned, try and get from your own country, shipping prices have gone mad, and I'm sure events in Europe will be used to hike it even more.

 

Also, if it's in your own country, then it makes any issues with the machines a bit easier to solve. There's also Craigslist, but that is just the same as ebay with I'd guess, less protection.

 

Also, worth looking on Facebook marketplace (if you use social media, not every one likes it), ignore the silly prices posted, you just contact the seller and work a deal out, it (according to my daughter) is a thing where they put as silly a price up just for attention / joke.

 

Good luck..

Vitoco, I use the MACH app and created a virtual Visa credit card that Ebay accepted with no problem, I recommend you to use this solution.

If you do post in the wanted forum, be sure to include your location (or modify your signature so it's always there). I skip right over posts without a location.

Agreed, would be more helpful if people only put their country

I have many systems that I have cleaned and fully tested. PM me if you are in the U.S.

I've been having good luck with Facebook marketplace lately. Totally sticking to items that are within driving distance.

I picked up a real nice one from https://bonuslifecomputers.com/ but it looks like he's currently sold out of Atari systems.  Inventory comes and goes, but seems like the last year or so people have been buying systems like crazy.  Prices are way up and finding them is really challenging.
