Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

eBay: Philips PMC100 Composer Synthesizer Sequencer

Philips synth
From eBay: "Philips' one and only attempt at the synthesizer market. It combines preset FM synthesis with a sequencer, a cassette deck that doubles as a data and audio deck to load/save sequences or groove over the top of your favourite tapes plus a cool touch-membrane keyboard (ala EDP WASP, EH MiniSynth etc.)

It would be in brand-new condition (note plastic cover still on tape cover) if it weren't for two specks of white paint on two of the black keys on the touch-membrane keyboard. These don't affect functionality in anyway whatsoever; purely cosmetic. It comes with a data cassette plus a tape and book of 'Hits of The 80s' for the full nostalgic experience. There isn't a manual included but most functions are figured out easily enough through trial-and-error or common sense."

I'm almost inclined to bid, just to have the chance to put 'Hits of the 80s' through its paces. [via Matrixsynth]
