This makes no sense so to me. I’ll admit I have nostalgia for certain devices like my original Blackberry or the tangerine iMac that sit in our living room, used now primarily as a retro gaming device. (with one of my all time favorite games on any platform Dark Castle )
But I only have it and my MessagePad 2100 because I purchased them originally as new and for whatever reason, didn’t sell them or just junk them.
Adn for instance, I’d love to find a Palm Pilot or HandSpring Visor at a yard sale for $10 or so, but there is no way I’d pay anything even close to the original price let alone well over that.
I suspect perhaps that whoever bought this, plans on sitting on it for a while and then flipping it.
