I disagree. I think a Cheeto gun is an incredibly rare find. They are fully legal because they are semi-crunchomatic.

I have mixed feeling about this

How mixed? I'll Chex in on you later.

You could buy dozens of perfectly good model M keyboards for the price of that one NOS industrial model.

Now for some blitting from the back buffer.

It's not so much the price of this one that's humorous but the contents of the "NIB" SB16 - a second hand Aztec SB2.0 clone. It's actually not a bad little 8 bit sound card and the manual is there 😀

Those with "deep pockets" will pounce on this - heh:

Just bought an 850 P3 100mhz FSB for 32 bucks plus mobo, would this make that much of a speed difference? Certainly not for 368.00 I would think!

Fuck... at that point I'd just buy a slocket.

I originally posted this in the "bought these retro hardware today section", but felt it equally fitting to post here. Someone just bought a Cyrix 5x86-133/4x for 1244 euro (1468 USD, 1098 GBP, or 1888 CAD) and it wasn't me. I had no idea these were worth so much these days. I estimate the other items in the auction couldn't be worth more than 200-300 euro.

bon appetite!

Are these 1 GHz, 100 MHz FSB, slot 1 CPUs worth this much? I have a matched pair (used) that are sitting in a box.
