    Who in their right goddamn mind is willing to pay $440 USD for a Tandy 100? You can get them on ebay for a fraction of that.
    Almost all those auctions are closing with stupid prices. HAve these people been living under a rock and not realized how much cheaper is is on ebay?

    Well they *are* literally museum pieces lol...

    Does that command that much of a premium? I don't know.

    The 5000MC is one of the rarest, even on eBay I've only seen one in the last decade. What's surprising is that it has only got $500.

    Damn, outbid on the Deskmate lot. I couldn't go past 40, especially without knowing exactly what versions were in the box.

    I was going to go after the 5 THOR lots, but I forgot about it and by the time I saw this two of them had closed.

    Oh well, I've probably overspent my budget anyway, this past weekend, so it may be no bad thing.

    Outbid on everything I bid on. I'm a bit sad. Thought I had a few of them, and sniped at the last minute up beyond my budget.

    C'est la vie, I suppose.

    The Charles Tandy bust got way past my limit. I would of loved to have that one.

    and I agree with Mav, I've never seen a 5000 so the price seems like a bargain.

    5000 MC is the rarest Tandy I've seen. It's a bit of a pink unicorn of computers.

    In general some of the prices were a bit insane. I won 20 lots and spent my Christmas budget for the next 2 years!

    I mean who pays $405 dollars for an acoustic coupler? (hint, not me!)
