TAS link.

Haha ! I just saw that too. You beat me to it. Like it's the only
TAS listing. And there have already been many more auctions that have ended.

Sometimes I am positively amazed by humans.

Oh, and I didn't touch an HP for this. I used a spreadsheet on an IBM :-)

I'm conflicted about this. On the one hand it's amazing to see so many folks getting, not to put too fine a point on it, [screwed, not only by the sellers, but through getting potentially defective units. On the other it's nice to see a revived 15C selling so well. It may mean HP will actually spend the dough to implement in a reasonable way the fixes Cyrille and Tim come up with. Of course, in my dreams, brisk sales could even lead to a not limited edition 15C, or even consideration of the idea to designing new calcs along the lines of the "42S plus II glory hallelujah."

Like I said: *sigh*. :)

Amen!

Appropriate Sunday commentary. :)

There's no doubt in my mind that this hobby is at least 2/3 religion, and that last decimal digit better be a seven. :)

#26

Have you been tracking prices for a while, Bill?


#27

On and off for about 10 years...
But I am not a baseball statistician about it.

Bill,

Great work.

Funny to know that the one from the Datamath Calculator Museum sold for the highest price so far ;-))

I guess I should focus more on Hewlett Packard stuff instead TI's.

Cheers,
Joerg


#29

Yes, you should!


#30

Gene,

I would have to sell my TI-88 first - a nice HP collection needs some start-up money ;-))

Cheers,
Joerg


#31

I believe you said you'd sell the TI-88 for $2500.01, right?


#32

I remember that you wanted to trade it for your supercharged, custom-painted Saleen Mustang ;-))

Cheers,
Joerg


#33

Really? I don't remember ever saying that.

Besides, as a sophisticated European person used to sophisticated cars, I don't think you'd like it. It's pretty, but quite crude. Kind of like the SR-60. :-)


#34

I discovered that there is a pretty energetic 1960s Mustang collector fan base in Holland. Meanwhile in the U.S. we like better cars, such as Porche....

At least for us Europeans that is true after all.

And with the bugs apparently accumulating in the LE, I might be tempted to also take advantage of this situation... ;)


#36

Seems there are better investments ;-)
