Does the seller do crime scene cleanup? I feel like that was maybe a murder weapon.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

You laugh but if I'm correct that's a mechanical design similar to the AT101 series from dell in which case its still a good deal. Its not that bad. $20 is a good price for ANY mechanical keyboard.

Not sure it is, look at the pic of the bottom, no depth to it. Fairly sure I once owned a similar one and it was rubber dome.

Edit: Also don't think they were doing mechanical into win 9x era as denoted by windows keys and purple plug indicates PC97

It's a rubber dome. The reason I found the auction was because I was searching the model number as I have one. It's got a thick metal plate in it and weighs a ton as well.

My AT101 is mechanical and it has an PC97 plug IIRC.

Another one for just $50

Or it's just fine and dandy for the land of eBay?

I definitely got my Virge cards cheaper than that last year and earlier this year. I didn't go over $15-$20 for any of them, and most were under $10 incl shipping within the US. It'd have to be a very special card for me to consider anything near $50.

You haven't seen the $25,000 VHS copy of beauty and the beast in a beat up case? Anyone can set any BiN price. Sometimes it's to scam ppl on craigslist "look at what they're going for on eBay"

Maybe they're magical?

Another update from seller... "Thank you for your help. Late night listing I guess.", listing price fixed. :> Normalish now.

390 $ for ATI RADEON 7500 PCI and there is only one left for sale... what is a reasonable price for that card?

Someone is selling it for almost twice as much here:
