That is an incredible collection nonetheless.
If the thing isn't on fire it's a software problem.

It's all right, but with a notable lack of Alpha and PA-RISC.
Some of the most exotic stuff on eBay is completely unlabeled: this was a HP PA-7000 66 MHz from a 9000/730 Snake, and 3 EV68A Slot B cards. You could search for years for either of these, but they're simply sold as scrap for the gram of gold they contain.

Holy buckets he's got a Crusoe in there! :shock:

If I was one of the poor unfortunates who lost a fortune on Transmeta I'd buy it just so I could sneak into Linus' backyard and throw it at his house, you know, like Burrell Smith threw rocks at Steve Jobs' house. Right? Oh never mind... :lol:

According to this site, the Pentium Pro has the best gold yield for a CPU at 1 gram.
Nice to know I still have a few laying around... :D

That's a damn fine collection. As so often - I'm lacking the money.

But in todays time of zero or even minus interest plus "Anlagenotstand" (="Investment-Emergency"), this collection might be a good buy. If you have to invest money.

(note: I'm note affiliated with the seller whatsoever)

Beanie babies are a better investment. I think the seller needs to reconnect with reality and move the decimal comma one or two spots to the left.

Obviously the exclusive art auction market and mass produced commodities, like CPUs, follow the same appreciation patterns...
