A Mind Forever Voyaging (Infocom)

A Mind Forever Voyaging by Steve Meretzky and Infocom was one of the first successfully political science fiction adventures ever. An innovative, excellently written and cleverly designed interactive story that posed intriguing questions regarding our collective future and managed to be one of the most engrossing games I have played to this very day.

As with most Infocom releases, it also came in a lavish box you can actually own by bidding on this A Mind Forever Voyaging (PC) eBay auction. The game is complete in its box and the seller is willing to ship worldwide.

This lovely new take on the 1997 adventure runs on PAL C64s and C128s, comes with all sorts of goodies and requires a disk drive and either a joystick or mouse.

Scruffy and rare Jupiter Ace

Using Forth instead of BASIC and being all white in a era of black and beige 8-bit machines, the Jupiter Ace never really stood a chance. Not that it wasn't an interesting and cleverly designed micro, mind you, but those markets have always been too fickle. Anyway. For a chance to own one of these rare computers at a sensible price I suggest you have a look at this actually affordable Jupiter Ace eBay auction.

The micro is sadly scratched and looks pretty scruffy, but seems to be operating properly. It also comes with mains adapter, TV lead, cassette player cables, demo tape, manual and 6 tapes worth of games.

Seller ships to most of Europe, Australia, Russia, USA, Canada, Israel, New Zealand and Japan.

The Apple Macintosh Portable Computer

The Macintosh Portable was actually the very first portable computer by Apple and, possibly, the most impressive laptop of its era, what with its cutting-edge display, 16Mhz 16-bit processor, 40MB hard drive and price tag of $7300. Thankfully said pioneering laptop can be grabbed for much less via this Apple Macintosh 5120 Portable eBay auction.

This particular Mac comes with an extra megabyte of RAM, has had its logic board recapped and comes with a modem card, PSU and trackball. Though it does work and according to its seller/restorer has passed all tests, there are a few problems: the HDD cannot be accessed and sometimes floppy disks are not ejected. So, do have a careful read of the auction text before you bid please.

Seller ships to most places worldwide.
