TAM on eBay, ends March 17, 2006

I know a lot of you are deep in desire for one of these. I just noticed this one on eBay. It ends on the 17th. Looks like it's in excellent condition. She really is a temptation, isn't she? Wish I had the bucks. Good luck.

Twentieth Anniversary Mac on eBay

The seller's got no feedback file, though, so be careful. The price should go pretty high.

edit by eeun: Moved thread. Please post links only to your own ebay auctions in the buy/sell forums.

prototype TAM

a few weeks ago, they had a prototype of one of these units. went for over $400 US. let me find the auction...

here

went for $425. dunno what made it a proto, but it appears to be missing the pen, pencil, and other bits. only computer, subwoffer, and remote. no packaging.

cant wait for the 30th anniversary mac/ipod/laptop/whatever. only days till we find out (April 1st).

oh, anybody interested in prototypes, there's a ANS (apple network server) 700/150 for sale. looks like it was relisted. $200 starting bid. and imagine the shipping on that mother!! here, if your interested.

Re: prototype

That TAM prototype sold via buy-it-now. Seems like it went for too cheap. He should have just put it up with a high reserve instead of buy-it-now and watched where it went. I think he could have gotten a lot more with a bit of patience and calculation.

Especially since the last two regular TAMs went for $1006. and $1325.

Makes me want to sell my complete TAM!

ermm - $1000+??

Not all TAMs sell dear, witness my recent US$125 acquisition of an OK-condition example.

The protoTAM listing had little details, leaving us to wonder what exactly was proto about it. If an engineering sample (probable), it did sell low.

The example referred to in this thread has all original boxes and accessories, and is in very nice shape. Condition, condition, condition is the collectors' mantra, and I can see the very very best mint/as-new complete TAMs selling for $1K, but . . . if one can live with a not-so-primo-collectable-condition TAM, then $200 or $300 will suffice.

Auction ended

It sold for $910.00. It jumped from $400 to $910 in the last three minutes. Like a good card game. Thought it would probably go for more. Do you think it was worth it?

It would've went for more if the seller had more feedback scores. Anyone with a feedback score of "0" selling a high priced item will have trouble. Never could understand why people bid on high priced items by sellers with zero feedback. Guess they value money a lot less than I do.

oh man, now there is a TAm WI

oh man, now there is a TAM WITH ALL the original packaging. check it:

here

up to $400, 11 bid. 5 days left too. according to the seller, it was a lobby computer.

hmm, that makes me think. I used to collect cans about a year ago with the boy scouts over at the local Lear corp. building. thier lobby computer is a G4 Cube with LCD encased in glass. I wonder if they are ready to part with it, and if they still have all the original packaging somewhere...

Spectacular!

Wow, another immaculate TAM, with the original boxes, and again, a seller with zero feedback. This may be the once in a lifetime?
