> > > Have you folks been watching the sale prices of IBM PC's lately?What they're selling for and what they're worth are two different things. Why two people fought over a 5150 B model all the way up to $4500 is beyond me. If this one sells with more than 3 bids I will be more impressed.

> > Yes but that price is the ONLY bid .... it's highly suspicious.
> Dunno, the buyer bid history is pretty good the past 30 days, ~25 distinct bids, looks like about 20 purchases, mainly IBM and vintage computing.
> I am curious, why the high starting price vs. a reserve though? A low starting bid probably would have peaked more interest and drawn more bidders.
> Didn't something similar go for $4K recently? I recall seeing mention of a similar auction in another forum recently.
