After an infortunate miscommunication which led to a 4051 I had shipped
from the east coast costing me $300, this price does not seem too far out
of whack. Mine is a very nice specimen, in as good condition (if not
better since my tape drive works), including joysticks, tapes, manuals,
and a cover.

The factor that drove the shipping up to three times what it should have
been is that the person took it to Mailboxes Etc. and had them box and
ship it. They did a nice job but for $300 I'd have expected a woman to
pop out of the box when it arrived ;)
