I'm very tempted to go for this but I just don't think I could handle driving a truck all the way to Perth and back and I would not trust a freight company to do it without damaging anything.

For that price he should make a detailed list of every item there and stating the condition. I do not see anyone buying this lot without these details. Nice lot but I think a lot is dead hardware...

I dont see how you could make $20G out of that lot without knowing how many of each computer he has in there.

Amazing... I was living in Perth for months but now in Sydney... No way to go and have a look, unfortunately.

Having said that, the way the machines are stored shows very little love for them... Lucky the weather is dry over there but it definitely needs a better inventory. Did anyone contact him ? If not I may...

Pity I'm leaving Australia for good in a week... Maybe several people should join for a group buy ? I can finance a part of it but the logistic will be tough for me as I'm going overseas...

WOW!!!! I wonder how he accumulated all of that!

"Some machines are new in boxes!", i wonder which ones?, that boxed C64 and C16 looks quite new!

Shame he isn't willing to split though.

In any case this isnt the biggest compilation.

Ask iRevolver over at Amibay or TalkRetro, they bought literally a warehouse with (mainly) Commodore stuff.

Cheers,

I think the reason why the machines are stored like this and he is not willing to split is simple: he apparently bought this whole stock to someone (or to several persons) and he still hasn't finished to pick the machines up from where they are... Hence why we can't see all of them in pictures.

By the way in this lot he will only have two A4000 (one apparently with CybPPC + goodies, though...) and one A4000T with buggy sound according to the previous owner... Finally there will be no A3000 which all are "not working" according to the guy he just bought them from.

He is starting a better list (I have some info...) and will send more pictures...

Apparently I'm not the only one talking to him from the East Coast but for me it's going nowhere: although I have the finance I'm departing from Australia at the end of the month to go back to Europe and to other adventures... So I can't collect. My trip in Australia is over (after 6 years in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney), it's a pitty I'm missing such a bargain just at the end... Lol

If you want I can publish some info as I got them but the people interested better directly contact Brent. A group buy ?

Post what you have! I struggle to see how, once the good stuff has been scavenged that the remnants will offer any potential buyer the chance of profit.

not sure i appreciate the way this lot has been stored or stacked in any way.


to me it wont be worth the sort of money that has been asked for it.it looks more like a garage sale.
there is no way that all of that equipment is in full working order.

yes it would be good if you could atleast test it all but would take all day but for $8000 maybe the seller can test them if he wants $8000 firm .. lol


from the photos the actual cases are still very white and not the usually yellowing you would get ... must be the dry air in WA ... lol

I have no relation with the seller. I've just expressed my interest by email on Gumtree (where the ad was posted), asking for the number of machines and for pictures for the big ones he says he has but that we can't see on his first pictures (the A3000s, the A4000s, and the A4000Ts).

I have received 2 emails with interesting informations and another one with just the pictures I'm sharing here above (in the .rar file).

The first email was:

"One of the 4000's is pimped out with a cyberstorm PPC and cybergraphics, scuzzy, LAN card and huge HDD. There's are few multi sync monitors, I could go on forever.. Will talk soon."

The second is:

"so there is over 100 machines in total and still counting. There are 7 A1000's, 5 A2000's, 2 A4000's ( both working) I have one here and I haven't collected the other yet. There is 1 A4000T but I haven't picked it up yet. It has a minor fault by the sounds of it but cosmetically is ok. There are about 50 A500's (about 4 boxed). About 40 C64's a few 600's and a few 1200's (3 boxed). There are no 3000's because they guy who sold it all to me said that they were buggy. Will send photos soon."

Brent (the seller) wanted to talk to me over the phone, which I didn't really want to do because in the end I will not be able to purchase as I'm leaving the country, but was happy to receive his messages... and to share.
