Imagine how many CPCs you could buy with that kind of money! Pimped up to the max, too!  ;D

Google tells me there are 365 tech billionaires (one for each day of the year, strangely).
If I was one of them, I'd probably put some pocket money into an Apple I to have a play with....

@tjohnson  It's the wrong shape for an anchor. Maybe hot-air balloon ballast  :D

You would spend 1000th of your wealth on an old Apple computer also considering few of these people have the liquid cash, paper billionaires many.

Spent half my wealth on a 6128 Plus twenty years ago. No regrets...

LOL that's completely different on my opinion.  Anyway my opinion is a million quid on a apple 1 is insanity.

Where the fuck are the photos of the machine? 😂

He can't open it. It's still packed in the original standard kitchen Cling-film that it came in from the factory!

He just received 7 times feedback over the last year. Doesn't seem to be a successful business.

Of course it's worth that! He put the word "Rare" in the description! That automatically makes the item at least 10 times more expensive than reality. And adding *** or !!! either side of the word rare can cause an item to increase hundred-fold in price.

Also add a few pounds per photo, right?

I notice the same seller is selling a NES for almost £8000 and a set of 116 Codemasters games for £1699.97 (plus £3.50 postage & packing)!

Seriously??? :_D that made me actually laugh out loud. My kids just asked what is so funny.

I mean, come on... if you find someone who is willing to pay such an absurd amount of money, you will still charge him p&p?

Skunkfish

Seems a bit cheap actually, I'm worried they're not sending recorded!  :laugh:
