He's not obligated to post how much he got it for. The fact that he got that many units is in itself a steal.
Been 12 months now but I picked up a 15.4" Acer Laptop i5 2.27ghz, 8gb RAM, Radeon HD5470 GPU, for AU$40. Was practically brand new, bought it from Officeworks, (big retailer nationally in AU). It was a customer return labelled as "not working". Took out 1 RAM module, replaced it (AU$10, but i already had a spare) and boots like a dream :)
The guy even gave me a spare battery and a spare charger.
forgot to mention this one, bought a 360 Wireless adapter for pc yesterday from Cash Converters, (AU Pawn broker style stores), talked the sales guy down to $2 from the asking price of $15, cause he didnt even know what it was.
Bought a Gran Turismo 4 First Preview Demo for ¥ 1 !!! Just because auction's name was "Gran Turisno 4" instead of "Gran Turismo 4".
So don't forget to search for lots with a bit incorrect names.

What are the specs of the RiscPC?
Yeah, I was very lucky this time, the auction was only made 15min before I bought it. But I think it only arrived one time per year in the best case....
Unclejun : This is my SGI desk, the only non SGI machine (apart my laptop) is this RISC PC600. It's a classic config, ARM6 at 30mhz, 32mb of ram, 4Gb Compact flash to replace to old HDD (pretty fast loading..), but I have the 2Mb VRAM upgrade so I can use my LCD at 1024x768 256color or more. It also have an Ethernet card and an Eagle M2 video/audio digitizer board. I use RiscOS 3.6. I plan to add a Strong Arm processor sooner and maybe a 486 PC card.
I recently got Pocket Reversi (NGPC) for $3 loose. It seems to be one of the rarer games on the system
Well really awesome! I payed 10x more for my SGI... And i think was also a good price at all. So really great deal you made!!
My Indy use the R5000 with lates RiscOS, what is a "486er PC card"? Sounds great ^^

The U64 board is inside my second Indy. It's a R4400 175Mhz / XL24 with 128Mb ram running Irix 5.3. I have a R5000 machine but I was unable to find my Irix 5.3 for R5000 Processor install CD's....
If I remember correctly, early Irix release have some basic things / concept that come from old Risc/OS distribution.
The 486 card (586, 386 or Cirix model exist) is a small board for the Acorn RISC PC to run MS Dos, Windows 3.1 and 95 software and OS. The board have a PC processor etc...
I have a two slices RiscPC with a StrongArm 200MHz and an IBM 5x86 card (the ACA57), running RiscOs 4.39.
Bought recently a RiscOS 6i disc, but haven't had the time to mess with it yet.
No Vram upgrade though... :(
Also have an Acorn 7000 lying in a box, crushed by the weight of an Alpha 433u.
I have a thing for computers with x86 compatibility cards (Acorn, Apple, Sun).
Jackhead, you're confusing RiscOS with IRIX.
Forgot about this one.....
A while ago an electronics store over here in Australia, Dick Smith had a big gaming sale...
All new stuff
I got a DSi-XL for $40
Red Dead Redemption $3.50 (PS3)
Brutal Legends $5 (PS3)
XBOX360 MW3 320gb edition for $300 (retail was around $500 at the time) replaced my launch console which I gave to my nephew, so I suppose he scored well too.
Deus EX for $10 a
and a few other $5-10 games as well.
Dunno if this counts, but I think it's at least a nice bargain that I got this morning. I set my alarm clock at 4:45 for it although I just went to sleep at 3:45... ~_~
+ loose Hardware (AV Famicom, oldschool lightgun, yellow Hudson joystick, trackball, the two Hyper Olympics controllers)
29 games & hardware for a mere 18500yen ($240).
Donkey Kong JR no Sansuu Asobi (looks like it's in fairly good condition?)
Argos no Senshi
1942 & 1943
Gomokunarabe (Ginhako/silverbox edition)
Duck Hunt/Wild Gunman/Hogan's Alley
The rare games by IREM/Sunsoft/Nintendo look all like they are in pretty neat condition, and I've been on the lookout for a boxed DKJ Math (Sansuu Asobi) for AGES. The last one I saw in similar boxed condition went for 6500yen over a year ago... and considering I just bought a Popeye's English Asobi, it fits in the picture.
Man, I never thought I'd get so many of my most-wanted at once, lol. Metal Storm, Meta Fight, Raf World and DKJ Math have been on my Must-Buy-List for around 2 years, no kidding. O_O
<- can someone please make this as a repro and sell it so me?
