Quadra 950 on eBay - Insane Price?

Post by Turboladdade » January 7th, 2008, 7:56 pm

Can somebody explain to me why exactly this Quadra 950 is currently at $212 with 13 bids as I write this???

http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Apple-Macin ... dZViewItem

The price, being the first thing I saw, led me to read the description looking for some outstanding or highly unique features of this particular system - but alas nothing. It appears to be a regular old Quadra.

I have two of these lying around with much more impressive specs - what am I missing here?
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

Insanity? Other than that, I have no idea. I'd never pay even 1/10th of the current price for one.

whoever bid it up that high either doesn't know how old it is/ is insane, or is a scammer.

I think even it is free of charge, the postage will still be very high for this big giant !!

I just checked with the shipping calculator at the bottom, and it would be about $37 to ship it to me, which still by itself is probably more than the machine is worth.

Good luck to the winner of that bidding...

Mine quadra950 bidding from local at about US$6.50. (bid about a year ago and picked up myself in 30 min drive.)

Well the results of this auction make me want to sell my Quadra 950 and maybe some other similarly aged stuff.

Someone to pay over $200 for your Quadra 950?
