Trying to sell this computer and don't know anything about it as I got it many years ago. I have original everything but the buyer is asking me questions I can't answer.

Wow, a museum piece!
Perhaps auction it off on the collectors market.

Beide some simple standalone DOS programs, nothing much you can do with this machine let alone "connect it to the internet". It would take extra hardware and software to make that even work. The "Internet" idea was not yet conceived in that era.

✔ Best Answer
See what other say but I would have thought that although some sort of internet access is "just about possible" it would probably be extremely difficult due to modern internet protocols and lack of networking component availability.
EDIT: I overlapped with #1 (slow typing).

I assume your realise that the main interest for anyone buying such a computer is because it is vintage (1983), rather than using it seriously as an online computer in this day and age.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If the buyer doesn't know how to access the internet with such an antiquated machine, then you're simple answer should be "no"...

Thank you all for your replies.very helpful and now I remember when I got it that it was not internet compatible but now my question is, what's it worth? Or what's a reasonable price to even ask for it? I have so many disks, floppy's, printer and paper, manuals, games, Reader Rabbit, Math Rabbit and so much more that I just want to clear up some space in my garage but its all in such great shape it seems a shame to trash it or give it away.There's just so much stuff.
