    OK, so it's new to me ...[​IMG]This computer might be older than most of you - it's a 1982 model (I think)No hard drive - just dual floppy drivesThis is basically comparable to my first PC - my first computer cost VERY close to $2,000 in 1982 dollars - this one cost me $16. They're selling on Ebay for $200+ ...[​IMG]

    Hi PSP:What exactly makes them collectors items?Does the buyer just hold on to it to look at or do they actually use it in some way or another? I havent seen one like that since I was in high school.

    Finding things like this for me has a similar thrill to winning a big jackpot [​IMG]... and you KNOW how lucky I've been with the slots recently!
