I have been offered a wonderful looking Panasonic JD-850M CP/M machine which is located in Marton. I had it right up until I found the weight to be 50KG (and found my courier Fastway won't take anything over 25kg - wouldn't ship the alien mannequin I wanted to buy either because it was too long). Does anyone use any shipping company with an online calculator for estimating prices (I get tired of having to submit a request and wait for a reply on site when sometimes they don't even reply back) and I really like using the NZ Post rate finder?
I offered 'around $100' (my take on a fair market value for a computer without the name of a fruit) http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=1&c=1272
Boxing : 750mm length=675mm width=475mm , 51.5kg
Computer: 540 x 390 x 630 mm / 50 Kg
Who would be most interested in this? Is Radar the CP/M machine collector? Who can pick up?
I have since found out it comes in original boxing which surely adds to the find (and value) and I also have some history of purchase and use to pass on (with permission).
