Nice system, but the winning bid was a little high.
I wonder if the system had a printer and mouse with
it. Maybe some extra software? The seller only said
it came with a game. More info would have been good.
The monitor would be a nice catch, though.
I can't say that I have ever seen a Platinum Apple IIe sell for that much before, with shipping and handling it went for $301.
The printer was not offered because there is no card for a printer, it came without the printer card new. The printer for this computer is still available.
The reason (mainly) it went high is the 3.5" drive, and controller card to use it on the //e.
The rest of the system is $19.95 eBay fodder, but the 3.5 drive and controller are pure gold.
It looks like a regular 3.5" drive too, not a Unidisk, so it might be possible that it's a superdrive controller, highly sought after.
Does this mean my platinum Apple //e with the same equipment is worth that much ? Any offers. I also have the 3.5 adapter card and 3.5 drives seperate.
Someone is currently trying to sell a //e from a school surplus for $500.00! When I saw the price and picture I thought for sure that it was a huge lot of them, but upon contact the seller stated, that "no" it was just for one unit. He'll learn the hard way I guess. . .
the platinum is the edition with build in numeric pad, right?
And you are saying that the 3.5" floppy is what adds the value.
Well hot damn I have eight platinums then and at least one 3.5" drive, as well as several regular 5.25" ones
The only thing that made that IIe worth investigating was the potential that it had a superdrive controller in it. They go for $80 to $160+ depending on desperation.
If the IIe was in super nice cosmetic condition (no engraving, marking, scratches or yellowing), alone it would be worth $20-30 bucks. The 3.5 drive was worth $10-15 even if it was a superdrive.
I've got about 6 or 7 of those controllers, at least 3 NIB. Sometimes I think I should sell a couple.
If you're looking to sell one, let me know Sean. Don't need NIB, just something that works.
shiping was WAY to high for that. I shipped 2 G5s all the way across the US and it only cost $29!
