You've got the cheek to complain about his English writing abilities?!

So the iMac doesn't have an Airport card in it? Did you state that it did when you sold it?

You will have no option but to refund him. If you do not and he complains to Ebay, you will lose.

Did it have an ethernet card? If not, just ask him to return it at his cost and refund him. You have to be very clear when selling this kind of item on Ebay.

Have him return the item. Make sure everything is in the same order you sold it. Refund his money. Consider carefully the details next time you sell something on Ebay.

Based on your post, there's clearly an ethernet port so he can get internet to work, and it also states clearly that it has a slot for an Airport card, ie. no card installed.

I see the sale as having been done correctly by you, but on the other hand I don't know the legal side - Here in Denmark you have 30 days of full return even on used items, as long as they are bought online.

But really, complaining about his english, and then reading your post is just.... Sigh...

Here goes an example of a pot calling the kettle black. Your English is atrocious, and yet you complain that the buyer's English is horrendous? Why don't you look at yourself in the mirror first, hmm?
