Photo & Description is identical to this one on trademe http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=687029053&permanent=0

Description has been copied and pasted from other auction ?

At face value looks like someone has cloned Nats-crafts listing ?

sets off all kinds of warning alarms.

Cool machines, if I remember correctly, 3.5" 8 bit IDE?
I wanted a stab at it too, but bids are already a bit high for me.

You never know with prices. I sold a working one in perfect nick on Trade me about 2 years ago. It went for a mere $20.

If only keyboards cables and mouses had of been attached at factory with little chains :idea:

I wonder why there are so many computers with no cables and keyboards :?: is it because the keyboard and cables can
fit in the bin and the box part just wouldn't fit, 10 years back so it hung around until now ?

Yes, and just on the keyboard: it does have a special connector, so you can't just use the standard Model F/Model M clone keyboards.

The one listed on Wheedle has since been withdrawn. Likely it's the same machine.

As far as I know, it's a standard 5 pin DIN XT port on the side.
I can test/supply a matching Commodore 101 key keyboard if someone has a generic XT clone keyboard to swap. I have 3 of them.

HDD is XT-IDE, but you can actually low level format it if it needs it. Someone posted the instructions on here a while ago, good bit of info to know.

Hmm...maybe I'm confusing the PC-10 III connector with my Commodore PC-5 keyboard connector. It's been a while since I gazed upon the PC10-III.
