Electronics Is Awesome!
gets his Christmas toy right on time
I sold off my
original Lynx II back in 1999 so I could focus
more on my Jaguar collection. Now, in 2003 and
with titles in development such as Ultra Vore
and Alpine Games I've been craving a Lynx II
again. There seems to be an sudden spur of interest
for the Lynx again development-wise, as well
with other demos and coding taking place.
Out of nowhere
I decided, “OK, I really must get
an Atari Lynx again”. Over the period of the
last month or so I've been trying to win a Lynx
package on eBay for a relatively low price,
with no luck. I moved on to scouring the web
of older Atari retailers and came across quite
a few except Best Electronics stood out to me
has been in the Atari business for years upon
years now and I've heard the name many times
however I've never ordered from it. So for my
last minute spare decision to get a Lynx, I
head over to its web site and check out
the Lynx II selection.
Lo and behold
for $59.99 I can have a brand new Lynx
II! And they accept PayPal! The cheapest place
I've seen on the 'net for a new Lynx!
I contacted Best
Electronics and got a very kind and immediate
response to my questions as well as information
for PayPal payment. So, I placed my order on
Tuesday in high hopes for a Lynx II system I've
been wanting for a while now to show up on my
doorstep some time Christmas weekend.
To my surprise
Best Electronics not only shipped my Lynx II
the very same moment I had placed my order and
paid but on Christmas morning the system was
hand-delivered by the post office! Wow! What
a surprise that was! I was expecting the package
to come later on the weekend like a Saturday.
I was so excited to see the package with Atari
tape, too! It’s like it came directly from Atari!
made my Christmas day and its super fast
shipping was well beyond my expectations! The
packaging was excellent and I couldn’t have
asked for better!
