Continuing from references in a previous thread, I've listed just a few of the items tried for sale on trademe for those people where price is not an object and even gain status and fame by flaunting how much you pay for something.
There were a number of over priced items of computer & gaming interest to choose from, however the ones listed here are a few by people that despite repeated friendly advice by more knowledgeable people, seem to have their own ideas and estimates of value, and by my estimate are out by a factor of about 10. But each to their own.
Would love the Spectrum collection, but only at a reasonable price. I admit I probably falsely indicate interest and inflate the counter by looking at the auction, but that is only because I go in there to see if anyone else has commented on it.
