    I visit thrift stores a lot, and sometimes I happen upon a piece of old computing. I've come across a mint Commodore 1541 drive (which, in retrospect, I should have picked up), a PowerBook 2400c whose screen died after a few days, an Apple Extended Keyboard, and other fun things.

    This, though, seems to be the mother lode. I found it at the Goodwill in Middletown, CT.

    System, drives, monitor, printer, joystick, software (full list is in the photo). They want $450 for everything, they say it's all working, and they offer to let you verify that on the spot.

    Worthwhile?

    Seems a little pricey to me. Unless it has some decent expansion cards, like a scsi card and accelerator. These are a pain to run from a single 3.5" diskette.

    Also what rom version is this? I would avoid the rom 0 in favor of the rom 1 or 3 units.

    Does it come with manuals, system floppies and everything... or is it just the original boxes?

    I got the monitor, IIgs, and drive all CIB for $150 shipped years ago.

    This is a bit pricey - maybe, maybe, $200 if the units are all CIB (packing, paperwork, software, cables).
