Awww rats! (Pied Piper)

Super rare sounding computer on trademe not to mention a complete Dick Smith System 80 set up

Dick Smith System 80 / Pied Piper

Maybe a ronturner vs berendsen duke out. But it could be a pick up as I am thinking of going up to CHCH for this (non-computer) event - http://totheendofthenight.com/ - a zombie survival city run.

ps: check out my pun in the auction's Q&A when he answers.

That's a nice haul for someone that can pick up. And a Pied Piper. I remember that hearing that name in the day.

Sorry you missed out Clinton. It went pretty high though.

Even the days of cheap Commodores are coming to an end. Amiga 500s have blown CIAs, dying floppy drives and rotten A501s, C64s generally have blown CIAs and PLAs, the shielding is often heavily corroded and leaving rust particles on the PCB... it won't be long and unboxed but fully functional Commodores will be attracting higher prices too.
Just the local Commodore hobo and middle-aged PC hoarder.
eisa on Trademe. A lasting reminder of a Compaq fetish when I was younger.
