If it wasn’t for the shipping and import fees I would be tempted! :D

Wow, I could use a couple of them, but not 15!

No power or accessories--tough sell.

Somebody had aspirations of distributed-computing something or other, but with today's Arduino and Fruit Pi platforms, there are better ways. It would be nice to refurbish them all and sell them one-by-one, but collectors want the full package. Being on the American side of The Pond, I too am tempted to put in a lowball offer. But,... just what would I do with fifteen Zeddies?

A more realistic price would be around $200.00 for the lot, as a full package usually ranges between $30 to $50.

It would be nice to know what "real world" application they were used for. The seller says they were bought from an engineer, they definitely look like they had a hard life.

Regards;

Greg

If anybody is wondering where this lot is gone: to me. I did not expect to win with that offer.
First check: 5 are working fine, 1 is dead and the other 9 have the known keyboard problems.
What would I do with 15 Zeddies? First I'll put them to the other 30 oder 40 Zeddies here. But the most are for spares or repairs :D
Who wants one of the 5 tested and working Zeddies? Or the other?

Nice to know they went to a good home! Even better if you decide to redistribute if you have too many :)
