    Its just one computer? I wouldn't call that a Big collection. Sure it has alot of cards but the asking price is way too high for a IIe computer. Best of luck to your friends auction.

    also why is there ribbon cables sticking out the back of the computer? that seems rather unsightly and maybe a bit jank

    While I had to laugh at his comment about the cables coming out the back (youngins), that is a little odd for the IIe to be using an old parallel card like that vs a newer one with a case mounted connection. Not much you could have done about the numpad though, and i might have to agree with him that it definitely was janky (even having lived in that era myself) and not a typical steve jobs thing to do.
