I am planning to sell some of my vintage computers. I have an irrational habit of buying "backup machines" and such and have just ended up with too much stuff.

$500 - Amiga 1200 NTSC w/Blizzard 1220/4mb (28mhz 68020 and FPU + 4mb Fast RAM) - 4GB flash drive with whdload and a ton of apps installed
$ 75 - Commodore 64C NTSC - later version SID
$??? - Commodore CBM 8032
$125 - Atari STE + Mouse

I do not use AGA enough to justify having multiple AGA machines and as for the C64C, well I have a closet full of C64s... so I should sell some.

The 8032 is not working. I turned it on once and it worked once, and then promptly failed to turn on subsequent times. Must be a short somewhere.

Thought I'd offer them here before putting them on eBay.

That's cool that you are offering them here first. I know for sure that A1200 will fetch much more than that on eBay as they have gotten very expensive these days.

I have the same habit of keeping backups. I am going to be selling off some of my spares too. What area are you in?

New Jersey, lol. True story I once bought a dead A3000 from Mattsoft and tried to fix it. Shipping was NOT cheap.

I also have a VIC-20 with the intermediate font keyboard (Not PET, but not the same as the C64) that I will likely sell, and maybe an Apple IIGS with a 14Mhz Transwarp card. My collecting is totally irrational. I turned the IIGS on exactly once to see if it worked, yet I hate to part with it.

LOL! I bought one too a number of years ago when they were still cheap. I did the same thing, replaced the battery, powered it on to see if it worked and it has sat on the shelf since. I even bought a Microdrive CF card interface for it and a RAM card which still sit in the package. I did put it on craigslist a while back and got zero hits so it went back to the shelf. I always wanted to use an Apple II so I think I will keep it. But basically many things are on the chopping block now. Plus/4s, A500, A1200, Sega Saturn, N64, PS2, PS1 and possibly my never used C64 reloaded MK1 that has been sitting in a clear case waiting for transparent blue keys that will probably never come.

I'd be interested in your MK1/Case if you ever pull the trigger. I have the MK2, and it kills me I can't use a WiFi modem with it. Kills, I say.

I'd put my mechboard in there, too.
