A small break in the famine, something worth a good go at, a good ol classic here, nice powerful BASIC,
but could have done well with 8 colours and a sound volume control.
Its a good one to bid on as it hasn't had that popout piece pushed out (left of keyboard) and its verified to be a working machine.
Has some kind of CGA monitorhttp://www.trademe.co.nz/computers/vintage/auction-746472314.htm
Monitor is most likely a runner, just a poped A/C filter cap be the sounds of it, or other cap failure.
Im convinced a lot of vintage hardware will eventually hit the bins as people think smoke is terminal,
when mostly its just a $2 part, that isnt even vital to the items operation.
Im interested, im going to bid on it at 2 minutes to Midnight, and I have the home town advantage of free pickup
I know knightofthecode will have it on his watch list ?
Im predicting at least a three way duke out, tag team battle up to $150-$200 simply because from what I have seen Knightofthecode doesnt drop out on BBC's until around (or just over) the $200 mark against determined bidders. I think $200 would be pretty good for TradeMe, $50 anywhere else if you could find one elsewhere.
