Never underestimate the deep devotion and deep pockets of Apple fanboys. A mint-condition Apple II+ from early 1980 was recently placed on eBay with the original box, manuals, and software, and it sold for $1,414.87 — more than $200 more than it sold for over 25 years ago.

Congrats to the lucky winner! I'm sure you can't wait to get that sucker set up so you can do… whatever it is you plan to do with it. Perhaps it's for your private dorkatorium, where you'll keep it in a hermetically sealed case next to the original latex scalp piece worn by Worf and a framed photo of you with Stan Lee. Power to you, brother.

DISCUSSION

Clearly this is evidence that Apple products hold their resale value over time, and is one more reason that no one should ever buy computer hardware from anyone other than Apple.

Either that, or it is evidence that there are a lot of stupid Apple evangalistas out there that will pay way too much for old computers.
