Reptoids don't do that
 
 
However, just ask the seller, I think most of them will ship to Europe too.

Couldn't Merkel have brought some CPC gear along?)

She brought you a live re-enactment of Street Fighter, What more do you want?? :D

Did I miss that? -ohhhh get it now. Well, in Steet Fighter you didn't have entire sections of a city cordoned off, or tear gas, or SWAT teams holding girls as human shields. Quite the dystopic title I'd say!

Well, any fool knows a girl doesn't last long against molotov cocktails or stones. You need something more permanent unless you're going to be looking for fruits/chicken roast/emeralds in trash bins all the time.

Well, one can discuss the pricing, but....
 
 
 
To place all 19 of them on the dirty garden floor - that's really what makes me NOT liking them in particular. Shame on that guy! How can s/o treat a CPC with so much disrespect. And the seller seems not to be the one who could have been expected.
 
Poor CPCs - I really hope they get a good home and a caring new owner.

Seems a bit odd that they're all QWERTY layout, even the Schneider ones...

The NCs come up a lot lately, strangely enough! But they're always super-lovely.
Just out of interest, what's the usual going price for these? I picked up 3 NC100s and a PPC1512 as a job lot from a car boot sale recently, 1 seems dead but the other 2 are OK. I was planning on keeping both the working NC100s (and presumably the dead one too), but I'd never actually seen any on ebay so I really had no idea what they were worth when I bought them...

It's what I though first, seeing that!

Forget the dirty floor. 19 6128's for €880 is around €47 per 6128. Not exactly a bargain, they often go for less.

I do not read german, but it seems there is only one GT65 monitor for those 19 CPC 6128s.

I always consider a CPC without a monitor to be incomplete, yet they form the majority on ebay because sellers do not want to send a monitor anywhere, where do all these orphaned monitors end up?

If somebody is interrested, but the price is too high, you can send an offer. Good luck.

As far as I have seen & read all Schneider's were QWERTY as well (my 4 Schneiders are all QWERTY).
 
From wikipedia...
 
To achieve a German "QWERTZ" keyboard layout, Schneider marketed a small software to reassign the keys as well as sticker labels for the keys.

I have 3 GT65s in the garage, which I don't need. But they are impossible to get rid of due to the cost of posting them anywhere. I will probably dump them during the next clean out.

Yeah sure, 4 monitors= 4x16K Screen RAM, at that point the 464 has run out of space for anything else :D

No, you won't. We'll find a better solution, and I think I can make a bit of room in my basement.

I was offered another one for free only this week and I turned it down. There are too many of them and most CPC users don't want to work on a green screen. SCART and VGA solutions are used mainly these days.

Maybe the Oldenburg Computer Museum could make use of them if you're going to bin them?
I love poking (and peeking) around files.  I used to write saved-game editors on the Atari ST (and Amiga) using GFA BASIC, so looking forward to having some fun with my 6128 :)

Oldenburg is about 300Km from here, so I'd have to ship them there too.

I know you've visited Oldenburg a few times in the past, so next time you go there, take a detour through Cologne (and bring a big box with you) :D

Going back in mid-December but via Bremen. If you fancy popping up for a few beers, or some glühwein, I'll meet you there.

However, I'll look into a detour via Colonge when I book my flights ;-)
