I don't get it. It's a Mac Pro. How could he think it's a G5? If he got it last summer, than it should be a G5. I'm confused!

Maybe it is a G5, but he thinks it has Xeons.

That guys auction is all messed up, he says that it's a dual 2.3 G5 then says again that the CPU speed is dual 2.0ghz... and yeah I see the picture with two optical drive bays but then he goes and puts the old G5 Tower pictures (probably taken from some website) on his auction. He obviously has no idea what he's doing... it's not that hard to copy from About This Mac.

He's fixed it now.

Same price though, at the moment...

Now the seller has ended the listing because of "errors" in the listing.

I emailed him. He fixed it, sort of, but he still called it a "G5 Xeon", so I emailed him again saying "IT'S NOT A GOD DAMN G5!!!", and then he ended the listing because of errors.

I felt sorry for him...

This is why they always say to look for misspelled and incorrectly listed things on eBay and Craigslist, cuz you get the people that just don't know what they're doing. Everybody's searching for what you're selling, but nobody finds your listing cuz you screwed it up, so you get less bids. As a buyer, browsing is gonna find better deals than searching.

Well he seems to be doing alright now. I don't feel sorry for them, most of the time. It works out good for the buyer(me). I have an airport extreme base station on the way for $25. Also, I just picked up a whole smurfbox setup for 5.50. Now that I have a little one on the way, I can't spend money like I used to for my habit. Apple products are my crack
