This looks like a great deal! 3 hours left and no bids.

I was considering it, but too hard to pick up without a car & I have other things that need money to be spent on at the moment.

Auctions with an undisclosed reserve aren't worth my time, generally. I don't know why anyone does them. I translate it as "I want a ridiculous price for my item and I know it, but I'm going to try anyway." Of course, that's now always the case, but usually it seems to be.

Edit: Pickup only too. This seller's hitting all the buttons for a failed auction! Pity, the machine itself would be reasonably popular I'm sure.

That it has the Atari colour monitor makes it all that more attractive - I have two 520STFMs but just the basic mono monitor and it's simply not that great in mono :)
Bonus points that the ST uses near enough to PC formatting to allow images to be copied to real floppies without too much drama unlike the Amiga.
If someone's near enough to grab this, do it! :)
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
