very rare atari 64mb falcon 030 home computer

Indeed 64 Mb in a falcon ??? Thats new for me ! Always thought that 16 (14 usable) was the max.
Looks fine though :) Nice starting price too, won't stay long I think :)

I honestly could not believe it when I seen it had sold earlier. It was me who asked about the spec of the machine, to me he'd have been lucky to get £100 for it. There's one born every minute.

I bet it never gets used, and stops the minority of genuine fans getting a machine to use. It's actually very annoying.

Considering that it only has 1MB of RAM and no HD I guess that was a fair offer. They are getting quite rare in the UK these days though. The Falcon is such an under-rated computer I feel...

Sold again and this time for £260! Is it the seller who is buying his own Falcon over and over or what!? :lol:

I think it is the seller who is buying his own machine.

I think the fact he was questioned about the specification on the first listing caused him to re-list it with the added info. But in my opinion he was trying for a quick expensive sell and not doing his homework by researching a 1MB Falcon 030 market value.

They are rare but not £300 quid rare. I thought £150 quid was very generous.
