I am going to purchase a vintage Texas Instruments TI 99/4a computer from a antique show, but I am wondering what might the functionality of it might be. It is an from an original owner, it was used until the early 90's, and has lived in the basement ever since. In the original box, with monitor and PEB, and the unit itself. There have been no floods that I know of, and it comes from a good home. Should I buy it?

What are they asking for it? I just bought one in the box, with cables, and the manual for 20 bucks.

10 bucks, but I'm not sure if it works.

For 10 bucks I would say its worth the risk.

The Peripheral Expansion Box is hard to find so pick it up.

That is definitely worth snagging. . .just for the PEB. The rest is a definite bonus too.
