My Falcon CT63 now on eBay

Postby revpig » Fri Oct 07, 2005 10:23 am

Family stuff means my Falcon has to go. Sad times.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 8705685791

Got a reserve of £450 on it. Cost loads more for the parts. Keeping my STs though.

If anyone wants any more photos or details just let me know.

I'm now off to cry in the corner for a bit. :cry:

Cheers

Quick questions... Will it run on USA 120v and is it PAL or NTSC (can these be switched?)

All falcons are both ntsc and pal. You need a transformer for the current though (not sure what uk uses).

His Falcon is powered by a PC type PSU so its probably switchable from UK to US voltage. In a normal Falcon (or ST) you would just need to replace the internal PSU with the appropriate one for your mains voltage.

Right! I'm not letting this go! That comment is just a pointless random uttering, and not even a decent opening shot for a flamewar!

Falc, it's all about the choices that people make, not that we've got more money than sense!

I'm not rich by any stretch of the imagination, nor are most of the people on this board. I have a choice of spending on either 1. Upgrading my Atari as far as possible, and a get a budget Mac (but still a nice machine) to take care of the rest. Or 2. A full-blown PeeCee gaming rig with bleeding edge graphics card and cpu and all of it.

I prefer option 1. That is my personal choice. I just love Atari TOS to bits and want to see how far I can go with it. Some others may prefer the second option, and keep their Falcon unmodded, and admire the purity of the original machine.

In short, I'm willing to respect your choice and not pass judgement on it, please have the courtesy to do the same for us!

Do you think I'd be selling this if I was rich?
Stupidity is proved by actions and comments, Falcon. If you think that a CT60 is stupid then your labelling a large part of the Atari community in that way.

Way to go.

Well no but the price/performance ratio for this hardware compared to todays kit is truely lousy. Therefore it take a true enthusiast to realise the true beauty of it. I think 030 is merely looking at the sale as the rest of the world would. Clearly he would love it or he wouldnt be posting, it just that it takes a tidy lump of disposable (truely disposable) income to be happy to bid. A lump that most gainfully employed folk would baulk at using for such purposes, 030 is quite young and therefore doesnt have much income.

I take it more as a Homer-esque comment rather than a dig, 030 is sound.

My 030 with 14Mb and FPU makes me happy enough :) Mmmmm falcony goodness.

There are times when no comment at all is best, this is one of them! ;-)

Sorry i didnt really mean it that much i suppose im just jealous. :roll:
I payed very little for my high tech gaming pc but the fact is i need a pc its much more practical than an Atari, I would also love a ct60 or ct63 so i could play doom and quake and all that on my falcon and a bigger hard drive for it, and a cd drive, and a ethernec thingemy and an ares chat client. But in the end its just a toy, a very expensive toy for an atari when it doesnt do much that is still usefull and nothing that a pc cant do.

Damn, that's sad.

I see it sold for 550 UKP, congratulations I suppose, although somehow I feel it's more fitting with a funeral feast....

If I had to sell my CT60, I'd probably cry in a corner too...

It looks like it has just been sold now :-)

I think Kev D (Sh3) was the buyer, if I'm guessing his ebay nick correctly!

Although it is speaking afterwards, I think it is not the right descision to sell a oomputer like that, just for the cause of money.
If you could find them on every corner of the street it was another thing. But you don't find it on every corner. I think even that you could not find more than 10 in an average country.
I did something lik that in the past myself, I had all original albums of the Rolling Stones up to the mid 80's and I sold them for 300 guilders. After a few months that money was gone, I still needed money, so there was no change of situation and I lost all of my Rolling Stones records. After that I sold my Asterix and Obelix comics, again a 100 guilders, but again gone after a month. And afterwards I saw other ways to get that money.
But again, it is talking afterwards. And I hope you buy a beautifull Atari t-shirt for your kids.
1 Atari 520ST, 1 Atari 1040STf, 1 Atari 1040 STfm, 2 Atari 1040 STe, 2 Atari Mega 1, 1 Atari Mega ST 2, 1 Mega STe, 1 Megafile 30, 1 Megafile with an IBM 1Gb replacement, 2 Atari TT030 and 1 Falcon

Maybe - but 500 quid is a tidy lump of cash, there was a stage when I was paying the mortgage with a credit card, 500 quid would have been far more useful at that stage than an Atari machine of any spec.
