more ebay madness! - bill platt - 11-02-2004


Re: more ebay madness! - Raymond Del Tondo - 11-02-2004

Yes, that's funy:-)

The unit seems to be used,

and has even no box...

I remember that I bought 2 of them in the mid 80's for a big $80 each to give them as gift.

Re: more ebay madness! - bill platt - 11-02-2004

I bought an extra 11c about a year ago, for $135, and I traded it for a 27s recently. It certainly seemed a fair trade at the time! The 27s sure has a lot more memory :-)

I suspect these prices are a relative high----it has happened before, too---there are really a lot of 11c machines out there, and enough 15cs too, that there *should* be a limit......

We'll see.....

Best regards,

The buyer only has one feddback. Have a look at this and it´s item...

Yes, he paid around $160 for another 11C... about what nice ones seem to go for.

What if.. - Robin (CH) - 11-04-2004

..HP (or Kinpo)has hired anonymous byers because they unfortunatly have sold all "vintage" calculators they ever made, and now are trying to find back to the old quality thru reverse-enginieering!?!


..Fiona is having a secret: Collecting old, nice, working HP Calcs for her own museum?

Re: more ebay madness! - Calckidd (USA) - 11-06-2004

I got an 11c at a local (Chicago) thrift shop two X-mases ago. Included excellent calc, manual, and box (in decent shape).

All for $2.00. I still have it and always will.

That's pretty reassonable--considering its a 15c! - bill platt - 11-16-2004


Re: That's pretty reassonable--considering its a 15c! - David Smith - 11-16-2004

Reasonable price if it had the box in nice condition. Otherwise mayby $75-100 too high.

Re: That's pretty reassonable--considering its a 15c! - Francis - 11-17-2004

It's just a pocket calculator. :-)

A very nice calculator, maybe, but that's all it is. It's not like it's some ancient antique with bucket loads of aesthetic value, so all this market inflation is, quite frankly, ridiculous. In terms of what it is, and how useful it is to me, I wouldn't pay any more than, say, 120 euro or 150 usd for an HP-15c, no matter how good its condition. I can't blame the eBay sellers whose auctions go stratospheric, but for buyers with any sense of perspective, there has to be a limit.

And a Mecedes 300SL Gullwing is just a car. It won't do much more than a Yugo...

Re: more ebay madness! - David Smith - 11-17-2004

It's time to auction my tortilla with Jesus on a cross... But I'll offer it here first...

Re: That's pretty reassonable--considering its a 15c! - Francis - 11-17-2004

Indeed; I'd go for the Yugo anyday! :-) When anyone asks what kind of carI have, I reply: "A small blue one."

Re: more ebay madness! - Dave Shaffer (Arizona) - 11-17-2004

Somehow, the 55 cents for insurance indicates to me the true value of this item! I guess that covers the cost of some hungry postal employee eating your cheese sandwich (even though "not intended for consumption").
