Well, this should just about finish off the "big iron".

In honor of the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the IBM PEE CEE, I'm putting one up! Only, this one has some unique features.

DOS 1.1
DOS 2.0
DOS 2.10

Cassette diagnostics!

Made in Scotland!

Think I'll get more than $10.76 for this one?

Item number is 110061250570

Yeah, but I hope to get the guys who stick a low bid in thinking they'll get a real bargain then get emotionally attached to the auction and get stupid in the last few minutes.

You know kinda like that CC-40 wafertape auction a couple of weeks back.

Or that Chuck guy, duking it out with someone who probably has 1.5 million in the bank (some sort of pleasure boat dude from his prior bids), for a mint TPDD2 disk drive for $306 dollars!

It is mint tho. I still am using the drive to spread out the worm gear grease. That's how mint it was.

I don't recognize the 10.76 bid person, likely you will get some more out of that then.

Edit: Oops, didn't notice that item had closed, guess you were right, 10.76 it is.

I was a bit bummed about this going so low. Hopefully the guy will give it a good home.

Let's see 203.50 > 10.76 so yes you did get more <jump>.

Yeah, your right Terry. Guess I should raise my opening bid. If I had, who knows, this might have sold for $204 instead of $203.50! http://www2.incredimail.com/english/images/order/smiley.gif

Hope you know I'm just kidding.

Really interesting thing about this auction.

I bought this in Scotland when I was stationed over there. Brought it back over here and swapped out the power supply to a switchable.

Well...The winner is in the UK!

susanf9b seems to be buying up anything related to early IBM systems on eBay for some time. It is a problem for me :lol:

Most of the systems in the UK and Europe are the "Made in Greenock, Scotland" type. Although my first 5160 had a 5150 sticker on the back saying "Made in New York"...

The owner's manuals are printed in Southampton I believe.

$300?!?!??! Did I miss something? ebay tells me the final was $203.50.

I get the feeling the winning bidder was after the software primarily also. She's asked me to split the shipment with the computer going economy and the software going airmail. Still going to hurt her. IBM never figured out how to make something lightweight!

Sorry, I must be getting dyslexic, could have sworn I saw 302. I would have let you keep the box, I already have a couple :-)
