Re: Is there Anyone "Overpaying" for Hardware and Proud of it? Well, maybe not Proud, but...

Well, yeah, nothing is free: you either spend your money or your time. So I think it's perfectly natural that some people just want to get their retro fix here and now. "Deal hunting" does add something to the hobby, though. It's a great rush — finding something valuable for next to nothing, even …
