It's the impatient people with more money than brains who have made this hobby into a market.
HEY. 😢 🤣
That's a huge generalization. [..] Few guys have the opportunity or patience to wait for something useful to turn up. [..] So are these guys all brainless because they want to buy the things needed for their hobby in their lifetime and not maybe 10 years later when a good opportunity turns up?
^^ What he said.
It's a bit of a FOMO thing for me. I see near-enough to exactly the model OEM PC, or the same case (etc.) I had back in the golden days, and I think, OK... when am I going to see this again? I would love to be one of you guys paying $10 for a fully-functional 486, but it's more important to me to have the 486 I want, rather than any 486. How much is that difference worth? I don't like to think about it. 😒
