A Microbee 256TC has been listed on eBay - CheshireNoir - 08-03-2021

Hey folks,
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/333912592434
Just saw this one come through. It looks interesting and is at a good starting price.
(Not for me. While it looks nice, I'm just not sure enough about my skills to be able to try and fix it.)

BTW, not my auction, and no affiliation with the seller. Just thought it was interesting to see.

Yes saw that, you dont see many of those models appear on ebay at all, last one I saw was a couple years back. Hate to think what the final price ends up at though.

Well, it's been stuck at $650 for quite some time. 7 hours to go. I would have expected it to shoot up by now.
Any rich collectors want one for their collection? :-D
(It's a little too expensive for me right now. Maybe next year I'll finally get a 'bee. Or wait for the next run of systems when they come out)

Well it did go up all the way to $660 with a 2nd bid but this morning it appears that bid was removed and back to 1 bid at $650. Will be interesting what happens in the last 5 min though Smile I already have a 256TC so I wont be bidding.

Wow, doubled in price in the last few seconds but I'm sure there is one happy bidder out there, as its been 2 or 3 years since one has appeared on ebay/gumtree/fb.

3 UNTESTED Microbees for "only" $5000.
I offered $199. They turned me down :-D

What about the three Microbee Monitors (M18 M35-2 & M15) that also popped us soon after on the other side of the country @ $7500.00, with very similar wording on the description line.
Didn't stay long though.

Well the 3 x bees for $5000 I'm sure were just put up to feel the water really, no sane person would buy at that price but boy hes got a lot of activity with everyone talking about them. I'm sure he just waiting for whoever offers a reasonable price.

As for the 3 x Monitors for $7500, that was put up just for fun as a sling off at the 3 x bee guy, just for fun. Not many saw the joke it though Smile

The 3 'bees are now down to $1300 for the lot. That seems much more reasonable. If I had a spare $1300 I'd be really tempted...

Ah well. Broke right now :-D
