    Default Commodore Amiga 4000T - almost 10K euros !

    Wow - its the most expensive one I have seen - makes Altair 8800's look cheap.

    Also makes me think about selling mine.

    Apparently some sort of prototype....because it has a sticker on the box to say so !

    Apparently this machine is one of only 100 4000T's made by Commodore before they went belly up and Amiga/Escom then issued a larger number in a slightly revised package.

    Almost 10K Euros and it's for parts only?

    Seller clearly states anything he sells over 20 years old is sold as defective while showing pictures of it actually running.
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems

    Agree - I think for 10K I'd take him up on his offer and fly to Germany to see it working.

    I can only assume it's an AS-IS loophole.
    I mean, you COULD list it working with the original box, but it's an Amiga with a lot of aftermarket mods. The fact it's working at all is a miracle.

    For those who went to VCF:PNW last year, you probably saw how the Amiga booth became two Amiga 4000's strewn across two tables after a few hours.

    It sold for $14400cad with at least one bid retraction. I do believe that is a new record.

    Indeed. Not sure what my 'standard' 4000T is worth these days.
    I think the 3000T' is more desirable and I saw that this same seller had a boxed 3000T for sale at a more modest 3000 euros.
