Did you adore your 64? Well, wanna buy a 65? That’ll cost you.

Earlier this month we saw how fans of vintage home computers can get a little crazy on eBay, bidding up the price of a 1983 10MHz Texas Instruments TI-99/8 to $3,240.

Well that’s nothing compared with the enthusiasm that Commodore commands. A prototype Commodore 65 more than doubled the winning TI bid when it sold on eBay recently for a whopping $7,625.

Described as by the seller as “the proposed successor to the most popular computer of all time,” the C65 is a prototype engineering unit that’s missing some chips. It doesn’t even work, but it came with a prototype Mitsumi keyboard.
