Do you have any idea on what you want for each system (money wise)?
It would be good to know, I guess, for fellow collectors on here or would you rather people PM you instead?

I have'nt got a clue of their value really. Id guess the Apple //e and //c would be worth more and maybe the einstein.

Dont think the 486 has any value really.

486 is fully complete. CDROM, Orchid Soundwave soundcard. Couple of hard disks. 3.5" FDD. VLB IDE and VGA. Case is a typical mini tower with the LED Mhz display!  ;D It may even have a SCSI card in it.

Has DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11 installed at the moment.

Will power it up tonight if you want more info. Will also take a pic.

I live near Peterborough.

I can hang onto the SE/30 if you really want it. Let me know.

It is kinda annoying getting paid earlier in December.

Andy,
you know damn well that I would love the Einstein . . . :(
PM me with a price that you would accept - after all it would go to a good home!

There are a few things I would be interested in buying from that list, but you know, it's kind of like going into a shop and seeing something you'd quite like but there is no price tag.. It makes me kind of apprehensive to ask about the price in case it's out of my league.

I remember the last time I bought a second hand car from the local news paper, the people who put "offers" in the advert I usually found were offended with what I offered.

FYI I am interested in the DX2 and the ST but I want to know how much they are and how much postage will be please :)
