New sealed boxes of Intel 8" Disks

I know it's EBAY, but...

New, sealed boxes of 8" intel media..

They don't come up often, so I'd imagine someone will have a use for these.
"dsakey" on trademe. Apple II's are my thing.

Yes, you don't see unsealed packets of 8 inch disks that often.

If only I had something like a NEC APC to use them on :)

I once had in my possession a Data General mini (about the size of a small fridge) which sported two 8" drives. It was given away as surplus "free to a good home" when I was working in Wellington in the 80's. Complete and fully operational, it was powered by a MicroNova Mn601 processor. It came with about two dozen 8" floppies with RDOS and several applications including COBOL and PL/1 compilers.

Unfortunately, I was forced to abandon it when I had to move. I just didn't have room for it. I left it in a storage garage in Shelly Bay :?

Now I kick myself for not hanging on to it :(

Yes, that old iron is large and heavy.

None of my computers need 8 inch disks. It would be nice to have at least one that did.
