Last month I decided to just go ahead and purchase a factory sealed Microsoft Softcard II System version 2.28B off of ebay at full asking price (approxiamtely $400 after tax and shipping). So now I have it in my den still sealed. I'm somewhat torn between opening it, or leaving it sealed. Nowadays, very few people collect anything that my generation deems as having value. So I'm leaning towards opening it, installing it, and using it like I did back in the early 1980's in my computer classes. Yet, it looks so cool being sealed.
Before I so anything, I'm interested in the opinion of others in this forum as to what they would do. And yes, I had the extra cash so that buying it made no difference to me even at the full asking price.
