What was the '16 bit Sounds Card'? Am guessing a Crystal or ESS based thing?
I can actually tell you the exact one at the time of that advertisement since the warranty sticker on the back is dated January 1997.
It's an ESS Audiodrive ES1868F, this very card here:
Had this pop up from a saved search.
This sold for $300 two days ago. And to think I let go of my 22” diamondtron monitor for under $50 a few years ago.
LOL at this guy gunning for $500 for his "IBM".
A local example. The final auction price will be at least 2 or 3 hundred $, minimum.
I've got one of the those IBM LCD's on my workbench, nothing fancy but I liked the fact it's 4:3 and has an IBM logo. I think it's probably also one of the last IBM LCD's as I've seen the exact same monitor with Lenovo branding as well.
But that case and the mismatched drives! LOL.
I remember recycling my 21inch Trinitron 10 years ago, replaced by a 22" 1080p LCD. So many things over the years that I wish I kept!
Now there's a computer that I would LOVE to have in my collection!
I wish I had gotten into the game just a few years earlier, then I'm sure I wouldn't still be on the lookout for that big flat Trinitron monitor that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I got lucky one time years ago before I was into retro gaming. Way back in primary school I sold my SNES and game collection at a garage sale, I had moved onto the N64. I started to regret that decision a few years later in high school and I mentioned it to a mate one day who offered to sell me his childhood unit that he hadn't touched in years for $40. I readily accepted and ended up with a CIB 1CHIP!
I can't think of many times I've had that sort of luck, this retro gaming hobby is usually pretty expensive when you want the good stuff.
worst part is ther'es no sympathy from us.. we're as pissed off at you as you are with yourself
"Recycled", and "21in trinitron" shouldn't be in the same sentence
The outcome of the auction: $335 (= $315 AUD)
That's honestly a really good price considering the condition of it and the fact that it's complete. I would of paid that if I was in the market for one.
Who wants to tell this kind soul that those games are all $5 on GoG, and his versions aren't big-box price worthy?
lol. Those look like weird knock off versions. I have overkill in the original cardboard manaccom box. Should be worth 500 $.
You're not too far , you should go do it
Haha I was actually browsing for retro crap in local area. If we weren't in lockdown, I'd probably go and knock on their door.
The above was previously posted in the bargains thread. I thought I might post the update here instead... it just went for $930.
He sold two of his mechs for $200 each too. Nice payday for automatz.
hollly shit. I mean my PS/2's aren't in as good condition as that, but all the same. between that, and other things i've been seeing. I think I need to do an audit and think about my current contents insurance :/
Holey crap.. I was expecting $500+.. But at nearly $1k. Nice..
I think early IBM's and to a lesser extent Compaqs etc are getting semi-seriously collectible. Particularly when they are all together with keyb, mouse, screen etc.
