IBM model 30 PC only $US585!!!

       http://www.abcresellers.bigstep.com/item.jhtml?UCIDs=1068993%7C1172812&PRID=1225577

Or even cheaper here (plus NZ freight)

       http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Vintage/auction-26255923.htm

Or I could rat a few junk shops for you to see if there are any left
:-)

I've got an original IBM PC here - an entirely different story.

Thanks for the tip...
I have a long list of old computers that I was planning to send to the
landfill. I will run them on EBAY first. I bet they still wind up in the
landfill!

Included is an "original PC" and a TRS80-2.
The difference in junk and collectable is in the eye of the beholder and
this one has changed...

Both those will definitely find a home elsewhere - even if only at a
"buyer pays freight" cost. Too sad to let them die. I would think the
original PC was worth at least a modest amount to a collector.

A model 30 is another story. Although the Model 30-286 (!) was a
surpassingly good PC in its day.

A few Years ago I sold my commodore PET 8K, still working, for $600 to a
collector.  I only paid $450 for it when I bought it used.

That's interesting. I have a Commodore PET  (metal case with the original
chiclet keyboard).
I think it was around C$1700 in 1979 or so. Any idea what that would be
worth (not that it's for sale,
just curious). It worked the last time I played with it.

I tried to order a Pet into Australia in 1977 it would have been, but because of
the 110/240-50/60hz power differences, they wouldn't ship it.

Had to settle for the first trash-80 shipped into OZ in March 78.
Still got it, but if you can imagine a zif socket coming out of the keyboard,
64K rams and other chips piggy backed all over, and a daughter board with roms
and ZIF's shooting out to one side, I doubt if anybody but me could love it. :-)

I listed mine on EBAY with A $500 reserve after I saw another one sell
for that amount.  They have one on now

Another big seller was the first osborne CPM machines.

I still have my Panasonnic SR. partner with my first brand ne seagate
ST238R 30 meg Hard drive I bought for $305.00 new  w/o the controller card.
It seems that computers (and other electronics) are the only things
wher you can buy more (preformance wise) for less money as time goes on.

Good grief!  They weren't any good even when they were new - the runt of the PS/2 range, they were hardly any
more powerful than the AT that they replaced, and they only had a 720k floppy drive, against the AT's 1.2M.

I like the comment at the end of that page:

 "Please call if you need help."

Presumably if you are considering buying one, this applies!  :-)))

I have one. I'm not selling it but I'd be interested in knowing what
they go for.
Has DB2 AFAIK. And probably Word Star and Visi Calc.

I had a CPM Cromemco with the original 20A linear power supply, rack mount,
but got rid of it (just too big and heavy).

I think the real collectable from that genre is the IMSAI one with the
switches on the front.
