Atari Mega STE currently available on eBay this Easter

Post by Icky » Sun Apr 01, 2018 5:12 pm

I noticed that there is an Atari Mega STE currently available on eBay - Looks like its an early UK version with a 2.05 GB TOS.

Going for ~£197 but also has postage costs from the Netherlands ~£35 to the UK.

Thats my problem too. If I was getting anything else it'd have to be a TT at least and no way I can afford one of those right now.

Yeah, I was buying machines to strip for PSU's, floppy drives, spares etc, but now they to expensive to do that. The SR98s in my store are the last ever I be doing. Plus unlikely to have 720K drives again.. Spare chips will go out of stock and that's the end of it. Buying machines is just to expensive now, plus I am banned from ebay and paypal, so not like I can buy any anyways :lol:

This one is a bit yellow and would need a bit of cleaning up. I always find it odd on the Mega STE and TT cases that the HDD lid always becomes a different colour to the main section.

I know Exxos you have been looking at the ST case remake but I have often wondered about the Mega STE / TT case remake - firstly starting with the HDD lid replacement as its a smaller component to work with.
