eBay Watch: Phoebe, Kinetic, and StrongARM

PhoebeOnce again there are some more great buys on eBay. After browsing the list of RISC OS related items I have uncovered three items that may be of interest to both RISC OS users and collectors.
The fabled Acorn Phoebe has turned up on eBay, although it isn't really a Phoebe, but a StrongARM, RISC OS 4 Risc PC in a Phoebe box. Interest has come from well known RISC OS users such as Martin Hansen. This auction is already over 150 with postage in the region of 12.50
Also appearing this week is a very high spec Kinetic RiscPC with 194MB memory, RISC OS Select, 100MB/S Ethernet, and more. This is currently in the region of 200 and is expect to rise a lot higher.
Finally, wooyay has listed a 200MHz StrongARM for a Risc PC which is currently under 50. StrongARMs are a must for RiscPC users who want to use most software at a reasonable speed, and usually sell for in the region of 100
