I won an eBay auction for three Philips P800 family minis with three cartridge disc drives, disc cartridges, lots of spare parts, and manuals including schematics. All for the incredible sum of 10 euros 75.

I saw the auction when it had 11 minutes left to go while I was on vacation (I'm a bit of an eBay junkie, although deals like this are becoming rare).
