Apple IIe Mono Monitor - You win some, you lose some

Postby tezza on Sat Nov 26, 2011 8:49 am

Oh well, you win some and you lose some.

This illustrates the problem one has as a buyer when things you do want are bundled with things you don’t want. Despite being advertised just a Monochrome Apple IIe monitor, this item was bundled with an Apple IIe. I’ve got more than enough of the latter and I didn’t want the hassle of selling one. Being just interested in the monitor I didn’t bid too high, but for someone interested in the Monitor WITH the Apple IIe and drive they probably got a bargain at $62. There was only two of us in it, and I now wish I’d set a higher reserve. ..even just for the monitor. They probably aren’t that common.

Of course that’s still no guarantee I would have won the bid.

I'm possibly interested in an Apple 2 (or 2) if you want to dispose of any.
