Saw one with all the original packaging at a garage sale. Didn't buy it.

I have mine up in the attic. I'm trying to remember how quickly it went obsolete. I had the 32k expansion pack and a cassette storage system. I learned a little programming from it, so I guess it was worthwhile since I am a database administrator. I don't think I bought another computer until the late 90s.
