Apple II plus RFI keyboard

255 dollars plus shipping, no returns and no guarantee to work!!!!!
This is the most common II plus keyboard from what I understand and based on spending a week fixing the worst to troubleshoot. What is wrong with eBay and Apple products these days....

three points.....
after SJ Hysteria ( will be added to the list of pyschological deseases wihin few months ...)
offgoing paranoia ( as result of banking crash: save your money away from any bank...
this will be added to the list of psycho-deseases soon too... )
stagering frustration about upcomming christmas-holidays and the fear that everybody has
everything..... and therefor nothing really special is left for gift....

few weeks ago you got en entire computer for that money.....
and for half of that price you got an entire clone...
which is on my belief the cheapest way to get keys for your mimeo....

This is the same type of deal as the $150.00 IIc Motherboard that is for auction on eBay.

Why buy just the Motherboard at that price when I can buy at least four fully operational IIc units (including shipping) for the same amount of money?

These folks are completely oof thier gourd! lol Smile

But isn't it getting harder to find 2 series hardware at other venues? In the recent past I was able to find this stuff at schools and educational establishments or shops and labs and stuff like that.

In reality, it's become more difficult as the these things are snatched up.

as explained in other mails too nowadays it makes more sense to buy an entire II+clone and desolder the keys and reusing them as spareparts and putting the chips to the antistaticfoam then as spareparts too - its at least at the end rather cheaper than hunting for NOS keys....
