    Default How much is a mont Timex Sinclair and a sealed lolo worth?


    Timex sinclair. Comes with all adapters. Works perfectly. All manuals inc. Has ram expansion. Tapes included are manufacturing control, money analyzer, and power pack. How much is this guy worth?

    I also have a factory sealed lolo in near mint condition. How much is that worth?

    Thanks guys!

    The Timex Sinclair isn't worth too much. They seem to be easy to find in the wild, along with the memory expansion. Game programs on cassette are harder, but you don't really have any.

    Manufacturing Control... what the hell? At what point would you want your Timex Sinclair 1000 to run an automated factory? It might gain control of all the assembly robots, start constructing a new body to contain it's little Z80 based mind, and essentially become like V'ger on a smaller scale.

    I have absolutely no experience with this kind of stuff, but I can't imagine it being worth much more than $10 because of such small demand for it.

    That said, it would be easy to ship if you decide to sell it because it's so tiny, you could ship it all for less than $5.

    But yeah, who would trust a factory with a computer that only has 2K of memory before the expansion?

    But what about the Sealed lolo? It has a cut out of the celephane on the front, anout 1 inch squared, but other then that it's perfect.

    An original Adventures of Lolo, sealed?

    Once again, pulling a figure out of the air, but anywhere in the neighborhood of $80-$110, in the condition you described it in.

    Oh, and could you PM me if/when you sell that Sinclair? I'm interested, but I have some other stuff I plan on buying soon.

    Probably wouldn't net you more than $30-35.

    Yeah, I was thinking originally that since it's a HAL game, it isn't worth that much sealed. But then I took into account that it's like $15-$20 CIB, so....

    So how much do you say it's worth? I want to sell it, hopefully for around 60 dollars. But if it's not worth that, then it's like trying to sell a card table for 300 bucks

    Yeah, but the tapes probably make it worth what he paid for it....

    Goodwill doesnt really count, I've bought a complete turbo-duo there for 6 dollars in the past, sitting right next to a barely working system only NES for $30.00

    My friend just bought a snes with bevis and butthead for 3 bucks, so yeah, goodwill is not a very reliable sorce for pricing. I mean, I heard a story about a guy picking up an earthbound cart for 2 bucks. Goodwill =/= Gamestop.

    So, how is that Timex Sinclair anyway? It looks like a pretty cool piece of computer history.

    It's fun if you can program basic. I have some skill, but I mostly suck. Games were horrible for this computer because the keyboard is cheap. Tapes take 5 min. to load. The ram expantion crashes the system if it's bumped. Overall, it's a cool piece of history, but it's just that. I want to sell it to a collector.

    PM me with the price, I'm very interested, even if I might not be able to purchase it right away because I have other purchases lined up.
