I see what you mean. Someone was selling a Commodore 64 in the local Free-ads
paper a while back - C64, broken PSU, a couple of games, sold as seen, ?150.
This was back when the going rate for a second-hand 400MHz PCs was ?100.
I actually spoke to the seller over the phone - "I paid ?100 for it in 1989
so I want ?150 for it now - there are people that collect these machines,
they're worth a lot, only made a hundred of them you know."
