and so far bidding is a mere pittance compared to what I've seen them go for in the past.

wow, cheap. I have seen these go for 3X before

Now might be a good time to buy "holy grails". Recession hits classic computer prices.

So close...

Watch that shipping cost though (to Australia):

Winning bid: US $132.50
Ended: Dec-11-08 14:48:15 PST
Shipping: US $246.75

Off topic - I'm off to the shed now to build some more CP/M boards. Only cost $50 per board. The PCB is not "vintage" but it is nice to note the manufacture dates on the ICs in the mid 1980s. CP/M is most definitely alive and well. Just gotta get me some vintage cases to put the boards in. Is there some way to artificially yellow a modern keyboard so it looks old? *grin*.

My mom is cleaning out the basement, and needs to get rid of a Xerox 820.

It is a dual 8" floppy model and comes with MS Basic 80, Supercalc, and a Xerox Word Processor.

All work. The machine works just as it did in 1983 or so.

It is located in San Jose. Trying to figure our what a good price would be to sell it in the next 10 days or so.

thanks

Sorry, only one Erik allowed here in San Jose!! :p

Good luck on the pricing. I'd guess somewhere in the $100 range if you've got the docs, but you may be able to get more if you find a motivated buyer. . . or you may not get any bites. :(

The marketplace is a good place to go. . .

People who buy antiques tend to have money no matter what the economy.

something wrong with my monitor, then I thought there was something wrong
with the Forum software, and then I said AHHA .....
