Re: Interest in MEGA ST machines ?

Well I bought a broken Mega 4 as well for 20 euro two weeks ago that only needed a new GLUE, but that you don't know until afterwards ;)

The going rate I posted above would be for the general retro market in Sweden. I've paid upwards of 120 euro for a nice one with a proper Mega ST keyboard.

Re: Interest in MEGA ST machines ?

Without keyboard, around 80 euro for a 4MB one.

They're quite popular, but acquiring the keyboards can be a bit daunting. I only have one Mega ST keyboard for mine, and two Mega STE keyboards (for three Mega STs and one Mega STE)

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

;) I was just going to comment on that - sounded weird that they didn't get hot at all!

4.6V was probably indeed very challenging for them to be running at :D
