Nice box! Shame about the US only shipping.

I've got essentially the identical machine. They are a fun time capsule!

Cool, but an expensive paperweight

A starting price of 603.66 - now, that's an insider, isn't it? ;-)

I'd rather have 133.66.

(133MHz owner)

Well, with two days to go someone finally bid on it. Looks like it will sell. Question is how much it will eventually fetch.

Wow, $1,033! I should put my dual 133MHz one up for sale.

Dual 133, my bad, I just got mine out of storage at it's only a dual 66MHz.
Anyway, I've taken pictures of it in preparation of listing it on eBay.
It will be interesting to see what it fetches.

Yup, it would easily fetch that, especially in good shape.

I purchased mine from a fellow collector at a very good price, but he also knew I wasn't going to turn around and liquidate it. I rather like the damn thing even though it's just a toy really.

Another one just appeared. It started at $1K and already has a first bid. Let's see where it ends up but may go higher than the last one that sold...

I made the opening bid on that one, $804.86. :D

Then I lost the auction by $25.

I also bid on, and lost this auction. I got a bit insane at the end:

I don't feel so good about the current one that sgifan linked to, the seller says it doesn't boot.

A BeBox is on my wishlist, though.

And this one's in Denmark too so it should be great for the Nekochan members in Europe!

I've been plagued by the latest round of the 'Creeping Crud' here in LA (had it for almost three weeks!) so I haven't had the strength to dig into my storage shed and drag out my BeBox. But now I'm on two weeks of vacation so I hope to have time to drag it out and give it a check out, then off to eBay.

Good luck with the listing! As I'm sure you've seen, the last one went for $1,325.

Wow. Almost wish I still had mine.

(Well, not really. I was moving, and… I don't really need such things.)

And another one. 66Mhz. Given the reference to "SGI collection", this may even be owned by one of the forum members here. $1000 Buy It Now:
