Hello,

I need to de-computer. I have bushels of Apple items (too cute?). My plan was to ebay it, but selling through here may work.

The problem is many of these things may be too common and may not be worth the trouble on ebay. I've done some research. Some stuff will only sell for a buck or two.

Help me here- what items are interesting (I refuse to say @@@RARE@@@!)?

I appreciate honest answers,
Scott

Well, it's relative, but. . .

I think the Apple II, even with the powersupply swapped is difficult to find, and since it's working, you could probably command a pretty good premium for it, especially if you bundle it with a monitor, disk drives, serial card, joystick, . . . etc. Too bad about the cover, I have seen original ]['s go on ebay for big coin ($20k-$40k). If it's a ][+ though, you won't get too much.

Unfortunately times are hard, and probably about to get harder. Who knows what that market will bear.

I see that you have the software driver for the NoSlot Clock. Check your machines to see if the clock is installed in any of them. Tested and removed, with the software, you might get better than $40. (If the computer it's in hasn't been on for awhile, the tiny embedded lithium battery will need a recharge, so turn the computer on and let it sit for an hour or so, then you can load up the driver software and reset the time/date.)

If you have complete packages for the following software, then sell them individually you'll do better (otherwise put them in a bundle and you might get $25-$45-$??);

Apple Fortran
Apple Pascal
GEOS - includes GEOFile, GEOCalc,...
Merlin Pro Macro Assembler IIe, IIc

Good luck!

Apple II Stuff For Sale

Swapple,

I have to agree with Mutant Pie. If you had the lid for your Apple II you could probably get a good price, although I'm not so sure about the $20k. lol Right now I don't think that folks would spend that kind of money.

II+ and IIe computers are going for anywhere between $25 and (I want to say) $125 depending on what is in them and if they're bundled with anything else (Disk Drives, Printers, etc.).

Peripherals, software, and books can be had at different ends of the spectrum. I've seen AE Ram cards and / or acceleraters go for as little as $12.50 to as much as $125 or more. You just can't tell; especially now.

Whats interesting and could probably fetch a decent price on eBay?

These are the ones that might do well. I'm up on eBay all the time looking. My problem is that I, like you, have collected a lot of "Stuff " and am at the point where I must become "The Central Scrutenizer". lol Lately I have started collecting only peripherals (cards, etc.) that are in original and sealed boxes. This cuts back the amount of spending I do.

That's my two cents worth.

Good Luck and Best Regards,

Thanks for the suggestions!

Thank you for the very helpful suggestions. I wish I didn't have to get rid of these items. I remember the fun of using Pascal on an Apple. But I'm out of work and I need the money Sad

I'll hold off on selling the systems for now, but I have put some software up on ebay. My ID is "10types" but it may be easier to search for:

Apple II Pascal
Apple II Fortran
Apple II GEOS
Apple II Software Cassettes

I'll put more up the next week.

Thanks again,
Scott

No Slot Clock

The No-slot clock is still available new. It's used in various kinds of hardware and sold as the Dallas Smartwatch. I bought one at a local electronics store last year for about $25. I found the software for setting the time online.

ebay isn't the only way to go

there are plenty of people who don't like ebay for one reason or another.
If you live in a big enough city you might be able to make a listing on craigslist. Use the search feature to try to find apple systems that may of been put for sale recently to get a ballpark figure.
