[Sober Living] Amiga Clearance A06/06

In our final entry into this 6-part series about the fate of an Amiga I once owned, let’s consider some aspects of morality. For someone with close to seven years of sobriety, where I take sobriety as meaning being honest with myself and others, how does that apply to selling? How does that apply to the idea of keeping my word to one prospective buyer but having another come along with a more exciting price?

In the 5th part of this essay series, outlining selling an Amiga Commodore A500, let’s use this introductory space to narratively flashback before we jump ahead. Throughout these essays, I’ve covered: deciding to sell this retro computer, the importance of clean photography, being physically fit enough to sell, and thoughts on posting ads online. I had eight prospective buyers reach out offering to buy and I had to decide between first-responder “Ben” and high-baller “Dan.”

Within minutes of posting this Amiga, I had a responder, which was a future problem. “Ben” was interested. He would drive across town to pick up the computer. I was so ecstatic to get any offer that I agreed. Others then started reaching out with their interest and offers. One person was also willing to drive across town, but since I had promised it to “Ben,” I told this anonymous other it was already sold…

When you sell something, you have to be physically prepared for anything that goes your way. There’s no running portion of the buying/selling transaction, however in case things get dicey, you should know your escape routes. I bought a retro computer from someone and his wife had cautioned him about selling, to which he told her that if things got dicey, he’d just let the buyer [me] have it and run. Didn’t happen; coulda happened.

Always know the entire market value what you’re selling. For this A500, I thought I knew its value based on my quick research of internet prices, so in a hurry, I posted it to multiple selling platforms with all the photos you’ll see throughout this 6-part series. If you’re feeling at all lonely, post something expensive at a cheap price, because then you’ll suddenly be the best friend of over a half-dozen people… in minutes!

I’m not sure how this Amiga Commodore A500 landed in my possession. Probably the same way it left my possession, through an online posting I happened on once. I had this idea of turning space in my old place into a computer museum. I never did. Instead, it collected dust, grime, and surprisingly, no rust. For this month of January, I decided to clear out any old hardware I could. Turns out this was popular…
