Wow, now that's something! Pretty amazing. I sold 4 TI-994/A's last year for about what the shipping was on this thing!
Good for the seller, I'll bet he's happy :) Of course 4A's are a dime a dozen but now you see what a 4, no A, can bring!

Crazy. To think we used to throw the 4's in the garbage because they weren't 4a's...

The seller is a member here. I would be surprised if he has too many complaints on this one. :)

That machine had a lot going for it--it was packed in the original box (very few 99/4 boxes survive) with all of the original accessories, and it was from very early in the production run for the 99/4 (the 46th week of 1979). I've only seen a few older than that, and the earliest ones I've ever seen were from weeks 37-39 of 1979. Most 99/4s go for between $200 and $250, $300 if they have something interesting about them (like the internal speaker with the slide switch volume control where the Solid State Software badge usually sits).

Yup, congrats to Brad :-) He sells lots of awesome items pretty frequently. Unfortunately they're also often in really good shape and boxed so out of my market price range ;-)
