I know i won't be finding one in the future, but have decided to let go of this one. This is a rather good condition Tandy 1000 ex from 1986, along with a CM-5 color CGA monitor, and two joysticks. Has 256k ram, and a serial port expansion board. I know i had a mouse that goes with it, but haven't been able to locate it yet. If i do find it, it will be included in the package.
Have no 5,1/4" DOS disks available, so can't say much about its true operational status, other than the fact that it turns on, the floppy whirls, it beeps, and up comes the system message asking for a bootable diskette.
Monitor is also operational.
The unit could use some cleaning, but as you can see she's been kept rather nice for her 28 years..
I really wanted to open 'er up and see if the interior would need cleaning, but there's a warranty sticker that covers the single screw that forbids it from opening up. Don't want to penetrate that, just in case some collector appreciates it being in place.
Picture time:

Yes, there's a Video out port!

The warranty sticker. There's a screw beneath it.

Asking for 180 Euros on this, Paypal gift please, or add fees, plus shipping.
I'm willing to split the main unit and sell for 140 Euros, and 60 Euros for the monitor. However, i'm not willing to ship this monitor anywhere! It would have to be a local pickup, or a nearby drive.
Giving first chance until tomorrow towards user LionelMandrake who's opened a wanted thread here: http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=20156&highlight=tandy+1000
But that won't include the monitor. Second picks would be fellow members from Greece, due to the bulk nature and fragility of this setup. Unless someone declares interest for just the main unit that is.
Remember, this is an American-standards machine, requiring 110v power.
Thanks for looking! :)

Changed heading from Sale to Swap. I'm looking for something by means of some smart phone, preferably an older iphone or a Xperia.
Willing to include shipping the main unit to Europe to justify the swap.. :)

I wouldn't normally post so soon, but since i found my composite monitor, i went through a test, and can now state that the Video OUT port of this machine is working. Here's a few pictures to show this:

Another update, as i managed to get a hold of an MS DOS 3.3 set of floppies.
I can now confirm that the drive is reading ok, and DOS is operational.. :)

New price tag! 100 Euros buys you the main unit, 40 Euros for the monitor.
That's excluding shipping for the main unit; the monitor has to be picked up.

Would you sell only serial port expansion board? If so, how much U.S.?

Sorry to say i have forgotten all about this, the Tandy was given elsewhere. Will close the thread.
