Nice!! Even though it's mentioned the seller doesn't want to split the bundle I bet a choccy fish someone will try and push the issue.

Yes. I guess one strategy (which may or may being applied here) is to see if people will buy it as a package first. If not, perhaps reconsider and sell off the components one by one. I'm sure the latter will return more in the long run but it's more work and if someone is prepared to buy the lot for what you want, then that's often good enough.

If someone does buy the kit, I'd happily purchase that printer from them if it wasn't wanted. My dot matrix is being difficult and refuses to turn the ribbon.
Awesome kit, but a System 80 would be wasted on me, hopefully a true collector gets their hands on the whole lot. I love the Sanyo Display Monitor!

Yes, those old B/W or green screen composite monitors aren't that common anymore.

I would be keen for one of the expansion interfaces but not sure I "need" the rest.
