A chap on the FB Vintage Computing group was seriously asking if an
original IBM PC with original packaging was worth USD 1000 this week.

A thousand bucks for an 8088. *shakes head in disbelief*

I sold a lot of my kit when I moved from the UK to Czechia, 6y ago.
Individual 1.2 MB 5¼" disk drives went for £25-£50 each. You might be
surprised how much it is worth... I was.
