Now you are just dangling the carrot & its a big one  ;D
I've been thinking about getting an 800xl for a long time now, it was one of my favourite computers back in the 80's, seeing Quagmires pics (especially with the dual floppy drives) has got me wanting one again.

I have been doing a little bit of browsing on ebay, seems the powerpacks are the rare part.

 you probably know already, but be very wary of XL/XE machines that don't have the PSU. In my experience it is because the computer does not work. And yes the Power supply's are getting hard to find, but you can make your own if you can solder a 5 pin din cable
