And that's a shame. Only two years ago they went for $75-100 working. I
bought two w/o boxes and spent about $140 without any games. The nicer
one I owned had a capacitor melt-down. I repaired it but the ROM was
damaged. Altogether I'd say I spent almost $300 on Tomy Tutor stuff and
still don't have Frogger!
But I privately bought a TI-99/4 (no a) in the box for $75 and was
offered $150 just for the box! And you don't want to know what I've been
offered (& refused) for the Aquarius 32K RAM from Australia that I
bought on eBay for $11.00. Then there's my early ROM (white on black
screen) Panasonic JR200 (no U) that I got cheap...
Of course the way things are going right now I may soon be selling all
my classic computer equipment. Times change eh?
