Laughable...

am I missing something here? What makes this II+ so special from the others on Ebay? Has this person forgotten about the value of this II+? LOL

another one to add to the laughable list :

Re: Laughable...

Hallo A2forever,
you forgot to mention the keyboardlabel on the top of the case....
this surely makes that computer that unique, so that the label will bring up another 300 bucks more ........
i just remember by that... i still have an external 5,25" drive with the inventory-number of the company sprayed on top.....
that surely will make the drive worth at least some 250 bucks extra....

its a funny thing.... for example mistakes at stamps make them valuable to a collector ... but non original labels
are harmful to the attitude "mint condition".... this surely is a strange world..... and some of this worlds inheritants act sometimes strange too.....

Re: Laughable...

Patrick and Speedy,

Yep! This one is already listed in the other topic.

I just keep seeing these things pop up on eBay all the time.
Like the almost $500.00 IIc, or the almost $1,500.00 IIgs.
Oh!, and anything that has "Steve Jobs" as part of the Listing Title is sure to be higher.

I keep saying it: These folks are not from this planet. They come from far, far away. Smile

Here is another sample of the insanety:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1984-ImageWriter-Printer-for-Macintosh-128k-M0001-512k-Plus-Apple-II-IIe-/271010936875?pt=US_Vintage_Computing_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3f1982b82b

I have 3 of these that I bought for LESS than $35.00 each.

And today's piece-to-resist-ants (thats French you know):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-25-Floppy-Disk-Notcher-for-Apple-Amiga-Commodore-and-more-/140791188243?pt=US_Vintage_Computing_Parts_Accessories&hash=item20c7cf0b13

A $5.00 item, now yours!

DUH!

Re: Laughable...

Could we perhaps confine these "point and laugh" ebay posts to the already existing thread?

Well it doesn't boot, the keys repeat, but at least all of them are there and you get 5 new sealed Atari games all for one low low price. Oh yea, by the way AS-IS and free shipping.
