Hi there!

I am starting to build a collection of 8 and 16 bit computers from the late 70ies until the early 90ies.

I am currently searching for a FS-A1GT (or FS-A1ST) in good working condition, either for trade or for sale.

Trading items:

- Mint condition Amiga 500, never (!) used (so no yellowed plastics etc.), in complete (!) original packaging (not one plastic bag is missing), or

Trading items:

- Mint condition Amiga 500, never (!) used (so no yellowed plastics etc.), in complete (!) original packaging (not one plastic bag is missing), or
- Used Amiga 500 with rare custom painting on the cover by famous German TV moderator of the 80ies, Stefanie Tücking

If you are not interested in the trading items - I am willing to pay a realistic price according to the system's condition.

Thanks for your attention!

Cheers,

Welkome to the MSX forum eMeSeX.
Just curious, what should be a realistic price?

To wolf - yes, it is one of those Amigas shown on the pictures (in fact, it is the lower one on the pictures showing both designs).

To shaiwa - I am new to the MSX world (spent my childhood with Commodore computers, first a PET in 1978, then a C64 in the early 80ies, and several Amigas in the late 80ies to early 90ies). So I do not yet know much about the market situation. I just recently got a Philips NMS 8250 on Ebay for €50, but in some other threads I saw that the Panasonics are much higher. Someone mentioned prices of up to €300, depending on the condition.

To me it would be important to either get a GT or an ST with 512k. If it is in a good state, I think I'd be willing to spend the money on it...

Cheers,

Well, there is a turbo R for sale at ebay here maybe your lucky.

A 8250 for 50 Euro, were there more MSX items or was it only the 8250? If so i'd never pay that much.
For a GT however i think youre lucky to find one in excelent condition for 300 euro. You can't buy mine for that money, thats for sure.

Shaiwa, the 50 Euro for the 8250 were including shipping of ~10 Euro, so I thought 40€ for the system itself is quite OK... but I am learning Smile

The one on Ebay looks interesting, and I do not believe it is a matter of luck but just a matter of cash Cool

Do you know if the only difference between the ST and the GT is the amount of main memory, or is there anything else that I haven't yet realized in difference (MIDI, sound capabilities)?

I'm mean luck to find a GT around or even below 300 euro.
But you're right, if you are aout of luck then it's a matter of cash.
Everything has it's price you know.

The difference beween a ST and GT can be found here.
So i'ts a a matter what you want.
I wanted a GT because of the MIDI capabilities, S-VHS output and 512KB main ram.

Guess I'll go for the GT on Ebay because of the MIDI connection (got a whole bunch of synths to connect Smile )

Anyway, thanks for the help.
