$199 OBO + $20 U.S. shipping. But you guys rave about these, and moan and groan when they're sold, so I thought you might like to know.  ;?)

(Sheesh, like they couldn't even be bothered to run a dust cloth over it?)

In fact the OBO button seems to have been removed Oo .

It's just a pretty board. It comes with horrible switches and is not usable.

Yup, but how many of us have had girlfriends sorta like that? I know I have.

To those of you who've pined for a Dasher but couldn't afford one, or missed an opportunity to grab one at a this-planet-type price, I just thought I'd mention that this Data General knitted hat (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Data-General-Beanie-Knitted-Hat-Dasher-Terminal-Keyboard-Computer/173156845534) (known here in Canada as a touque) is available, and much more reasonably:

It's usedóbut whoever wore it may very well have sat before one of those sought-after blue 'n' teal keebs o' beauty. Get this hat and you can be like a smitten fan of a touring pop star holding an all-night candlelight vigil on a hotel sidewalk.

Hi there

Just want to say I'm no keyboard enthusiast, but your passion stopped a Data General Dasher D1 from going to the dump!

Its currently on Ebay, bidding starts at 99p no reserve! 5 days to go! And the only reason it's not currently in a skip is because of your forum!

I am in the UK, Berkshire, but will ship internationally!

Good Luck to all
