Priciest BS2 Ever?

$15K... and it's no longer made, according to the description. Just $625 for 24 months. :)

  • At least it has free shipping!

  • I was hoping there would be a "Make an Offer" button.
    Re-inventing the wheel is not a waste of time if, when you are done, you understand why it is round.
  • That must be a typo probably suppose to be $15.00 I'm guessing. I bet Parallax wishes they where getting $15K a pop for the BS2.
  • There's something strange about that particular offer. In fact there's everything strange about that site. (Sorry Erco!)
  • I love their slogan: "Quality Equipment at Bargain Prices."

    And he has more than qty 10.

    Wonder what my Motorola XC88100 engineering samples from 1988 are worth - haven't been made for well over 20 years ;)

  • Sounds like he bought a lot at an auction and is now trying to get the best price possible. Better to start high and drop the price than to start low and find you could have got more.

    Wonder if he knows the BS2P24 is still around:

    It will run 20 year old programs. :) Wonder if the latest Basic Stamp IDE still identifies it.

    I still have a couple of Intel 8008 and 4004's from the 70's. I used to get ~$100 a piece on ebay.

    I PM'ed him yesterday that I needed a bunch for a class at$15K each... :)

    Since then, per Whit, he dropped his price to $45, with 10+ available.

    He replied today:

    I have 18 left - Give you the lot for $539.82

    That's $30 each, if anyone needs 18! :)

  • This is what the LOL-bot was invented for.
  • I suspect he lowered the price because I reported it as a fraudulent offer. ;-)

    I was hoping we would make me a righteous deal... like maybe two for $25,000!
