    I'm all for a bit of colour but that beast hurts me.

    Yikes. Clean though. That back panel looks near mint.

    Freakin awesome! I’d buy that if it was local. Turquoise is one of my favourite colours.

    I think history will appreciate a screencap in the thread.

    Love the case badge too, and the teal/turquoise fade on the plastics :thumbup: Maybe I'll throw a bid in...

    In instances like this where the seller say's they won't ship there's no harm in asking if they will if you arrange pickup. That is of course provided they have a box to ship it in.

    These days there a lot more options for the buyer to arrange a Courier to pick up an item from just about anywhere in Australia so this takes some of the hassle away for the seller.

    Is it worth it? I am torn at the moment.

    No HD
    No CPU
    No matching keyboard or mouse
    Scratched up
    May not work

    No postage sounds like he doesn't want the hassle of being hit with that when you get a brick. Put in a dead CPU to "protect the socket" ??? At least this comes with a heatsink for it.
    I am getting a bit tired of buying a raided piece of hardware to just try and re-assemble it.
    This one is near my workplace, and I'm not in a rush.

    https://www.cnet.com/products/compaq-presario-2260-6x86mx-300-mhz-32-mb-2-1-gb-crt-14/

    I dunno maybe.. $20.
    I am fond of old Compaq and IBM's.
    This one is meant to have a MII processor in it. Again I have an affinity for the Cyrix CPu's, remembering back to my 6x86 166+.

    While this one is close to me, I look at what $20-$50 gets you in Victoria or QLD and you basically can get a great all together setup for that.

    I might see if he is open to pack and send. There are slim pickings here in Perth.

    I think that one might be a dud, but it probably has $20 of value still.

    I was going to say that the turquoise XT would look nice next to a Barbie or Hot Wheels PC. This is a sign.

    Turquoise XT should fetch a good price - considering it was a business machine (assumed due to basic office XT specs), who would have wanted that on their woodgrained desk in the day?

    I had one of those Hot Wheels PCs, horribly cheap machines.
