Good question Matt. I'm sure it would be worth a bit to Sinclair fanatics or serious collectors who don't already have one. I'm not sure how many of these kind of people are in NZ though? If I didn't have a QL already I'd probably pay $250 or so for a clean working one.

If you want a general idea what they're selling for on eBay, the cheapest one I saw is currently sitting at NZ$86 bid - though its untested, and has a broken power lead.

NZS276 for this one

NZ$307 for this (no box mind you, though looks like its had its membrane replaced with a new one, etc)

NZ$317 (starting bid) for this one
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sinclair-QL-Manual-and-microdrive-/161604949309?pt=Vintage_Apple_Macintosh&hash=item25a067d53d

NZ$502 (buy now) - very clean looking unit, though add in the $150 P&P from the UK to Australia... :shock:

Tezza's $250 would probably be a good starting price to list it as and see where it goes from there. :)
