Wow, that price is quite irrational...

Seems I should check how many CX units I still have;-)



The other day I saw a common HP AC adapter go away for 130 bucks. Not bad either ;-)



I'm fairly sure that this one from the "New Old Stock" that was found in Great Britain several years ago. One of the sellers offered me one for about $70, but I responded with a question to ascertain exactly what was being offered (seemed too good to be true!). Apparently, the seller had a bunch of these, and didn't quite realize the value of them.

In the meantime, the auction price had shot up to > $300 for these units, and I didn't have enough chutzpah to accept the original offer.

Wow, the prices vary tremedously! Some just went for slightly above 100 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5753432758&ssPageName=STRK:MEDW:IT)


Please note that the CX in the auction you mentioned

is a used and incomplete unit, whereas those from

the UK seller are new old stock, unused, and complete with box.

That's a BIG difference, at least for a collector;-)



u are right Raymond, thanks for the correction!


you mean for a rich collector! (is there any other kind?)



It depends.

I got my NOS CX out of that batch as a trade for another rare HP-41 related item,

which I got from other people as kinda 'acknowledgement'

for some HP-48 related work I did for them;-)




Yes, for sure there are some, at least I know one <G>. I collect just for fun, not with the hope that I may have a revenue (revenge? <G>) in the end. As a result my collection is still _not_ complete and will never be (I do *not* hount for HP01 and alikes).



Well put Mike, of course I was provoking with my initial comment - I too won't part with hundreds of bucks (that I don't have) just for the sake of completing a collection of items.



My interest even shiftet from HW to emulators, because a) I'd like to still find a way to bed between all HP-boxes, cartons, and calculator manuals and b) today a 995,- EUR laptop is sufficient even to emulate an IBM mainframe (whatercooled - hence "Big Blue"). So a good emulator is like an idea preserved in a seed for future use. Nothing is real, matter is just perchance a special feature of room, knowledge is virtual, philosophy is only an other model, and faked is realy it. Now what could I do better than give an old HP to my children, even if they use it as door stop.

No-no, not true, just kiddin... I keep my collection, but now and then I ask myself: for what?!
