Wow, someone really wanted it; a lot of action within the last minute. I was pretty sure it would go for under 100 GBP for sure..

That's the way ebay auctions go. A little activity until nearly the end, then a flurry of bids. Some weird thing about the way people think about auctions.

There has been a couple on Ebay USA...one went for $111 one for $150 (buy it now). lLittle demand over here I guess.

It seems like most people interested in the ZX Spectrum in the US are expats (though I am not personally one). This is unsurprising considering that the TS2068 (the only version of the spectrum really available in the US) was not particularly popular.

Sure, Just letting people know to keep an eye on Ebay USA if they want to pick one up cheaper than the $300 they appear to be going for over there...The shipping would only be $25 or so.

I expect when the "full" Nexts ship there will be a quite a few boards listed from some of those people who got both.
