Beta boards

Wed Jun 15, 2016 1:43 pm

Wondering if any of the original 10 beta boards auctioned in 2012 (excluding the one donated to the Computer Museum) are likely to be auctioned again. If so, how much do you think they would go for now, given the Raspberry Pi's magnificant success. Back then they were unknown but now they're owned by millions.

I've also got one of the Brcm prototypes, the larger board. Got a broken off cap though, so don't use it!

Really must frame them all!

That's gotten all of the bids that it deserves.

It's called thinking. Why don't you try it sometime?
