PROFIT is made when you BUY/ACQUIRE NOT when you sell
I like this kind of stuff the TRS-80 was in working condition?
Nice find! I love finding & selling these vintage computers. I got a working Commodore 64 with its floppy drive and tons of educational kids games, everything in their original packages for free at a swap meet. Just sold on eBay for $110 + $50 shipping! There was so much stuff in this lot I had to send two packed boxes via UPS out to CA, which ended up totalling almost $90. Still made $65 or so, though. So learn from my mistake and make sure you adjust your pricing according to their weight if you eBay them!
is anyone here interested in this trs 80. computer. line printer and 8meg disk system before i e bay it.
Same computer I bought at a yard sale early 90's for my son, came with a bunch of different programming languages.
Owner told me he paid over $8000.00 for it when it was new.
Also offered to give me my money back when he realized this was for my son, I was curious why so asked him if it worked and his reply was yes but you could not play games on it. I said screw it, only a $100.00 no great loss well it tunred out my son using the programming languages was able to compile his own games.
Best $100.00 I ever spent.
My son is ADD and this computer brought him into the real world allowing him to express himself.
A year later I was so proud of my son I went out and purchased him an IBM compatible, with 8 megs of ram, math co-processor, 100 meg hard drive and a tape backup which set me back $7500.00. Then thinking my son and I would now have something in common bought myself a tower, motherboard HD and ram.
Joke was on me, I studied encryption and e-commerce when my son and I finally got together the only thing we had in common with computers is that we both used a power switch to turn them on.
