I do some buying of vintage computers on the Goodwill online auction web site so today I see an MC-10 here : http://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=3402328

I notice the weight says 25 pounds. Now being the Tandy savvy type of guy I am I send a polite e-mail them to let them know I want to bid but the weight is in error. I get a reply back stating that in fact the weight is correct and that it weighs 25 pounds and they will not change the weight in the auction. I thought some e-bay sellers were bad when it comes to padding shipping but this is a known retail establishment falsely listing an items weight at about 12.5X what it really is. I know where I will not be buying from in the future. Perhaps someone else can send am e-mail to inform them of their error.
