I've got a lovely CRT monitor that could be bundled with it. Matching vintage colour scheme, of course.

I’ve still got a lot of my early Mac computers, pizza box, G5 tower and a crt monitor etc.
Being an Apple fan I would say it’s a joke. ;):lol:

I have an old Sam Coupe computer....based on ZX Spectrum architecture. It even has a dedicated MIDI connection! I'm lead to believe they are fetching similar sums! I also have a working Acorn Electron.... I keep meaning to cash them in! 🤣

I've kept my 2004 XP machine going all these years because I can't fit a SCSI card in my main PC (2011 vintage). I've changed the PSU, replaced the hard drive with an SSD, upped the RAM etc. etc.
I sometimes have to power it on with the tip of a screwdriver, but I'm still quite fond of it. Also, it was my introduction to films on DVD, before I got a domestic DVD player, so it provided me a lot of entertainment over t'years. Beautiful plumage, squire!

Can anyone beat 2004 for a working PC?

I still have Win 95 and 98 Msoft install discs. I wonder what they might fetch?

I've still got my 1998 vintage Pentium 2 studio computer although I'm not sure if it still works. I still have all my old soundcards too including a Turtle Beach Multisound, TB Maui and a Zefiro ZA-2.

Close, James, but no cigarillo. :D
I still use mine for scsi .wav transfers, and it also runs Reaper, believe it or nay!

They're fetching between £40-£80

Some time ago I sold a Win98 CD. I was about to bin it, but thought, out of curiosity, "I wonder if this is worth anything" I looked on eBay and wow they were selling for prices way about what I expected. I listed the disk at £30 buy it now and it was sold within the day.

But this computer I refer to in my original post - £700+ surely that is way beyond all expectations, would someone really pay that?
