    I found one on my local craigslist for $20 and was wondering whether it is worth that?

    Do you want one? If so, yes. If not, no.

    It was a very common model, but also a high-quality model, so it's not truly worthless; but it was common enough that they don't sell for a lot, either.

    So if you were thinking "buy cheap, sell on eBay", yeah, you might be able to sell it for $50, but the effort you'd put in would likely not be worth the profit.

    Just the computer or monitor and peripherals included? What's the cosmetic condition of the case (yellowing, scuffs, etc.)? Is the unit functional? The IIsi is probably the most common of the Macintosh II line that I see up for sale. It's basically a stripped down IIci in a compact case that was somewhat notorious for developing problems with the onboard speaker. If it's for local pickup, I'd say yes just for a tinkering/restoration project. If you'll have to pay the price over in shipping I'd say buyer's discretion.

    At least $60 for the ROM SIMM only!!!

    SE/30 guys will pay that much to get a 32bit clean ROM to run their SE/30 with System 7.6 & OS 8.1.

    Check out eBay and see what IIsi & IIfx ROMs sell for.
