In German there is a saying: "Every day someone stupid stands up." Given the current retro hype with its inflated prices the computer might even find a buyer. Although, a 520STFm is obviously far from "RARE" as the seller claims.

In Spain there is a very appropriate saying: "Water that you will not drink, let it run".
Each seller has the same freedom to put a price on their items, and the buyer has the freedom for to accept it or not accept it.
The Atari scene is full of contrasts, there are also new devices that are very cheap and others that have adopted Amiga market forms, and I rarely see people protesting about prices.
I do not defend that seller (I have 4 or 5 STfm and I do not want to sell any), but I defend his freedom to value his possessions as he pleases.
Best regards.

In Greece the saying goes like "From a pie that you don't eat, what do you care if it burns?" but that's not the issue here. The seller is putting their ebay auction in a forum that has a post section for comments and people have every right to comment on this price inflation. What's interesting though is that Ataris are more expensive than Commodores...

It is logical, any musician can use an Atari currently to control his recording studio, it is still a professional tool and also with the category of retro legend.
Others have to settle for "Bars and Pipes" and many meditations of gurus and non-gurus. :lol:

In America, we often say 'Let the Buyer beware..'
Prices keep climbing because we keep buying. Or someone dose. We members here know what is in these machines, and if we want one in our collection we can figure out a reasonable price we be willing to pay for one. But something like this just make me (us) scratch my head. I will put this on my watch list to see if it sells.

no.

the guy is doing nothing wrong. His prices may be insane, but nobody is forcing you to read his threads.

When the prices for "Vampire-Atari" are published, I hope to see how they are outraged by all those who now do it with that ST announcement. Well, on second thought: when Vampire is released to the market many of us will be retired by age. :lol:
Meanwhile we have more things to talk about prices, CT60 for example, and many more that I'm going to shut up (for now).
It is not good to have two yardsticks, as appropriate.
eBay is full of people who believe they have discovered the Holy Grail in Grandpa's storage room, and full of absurd prices: is anyone surprised now? :shrug:

It helps if you know the value of jousting sticks too.
