    But theres a reserve on it, and who knows how high that is. It wont sell until the reserve is met, or better

    Its a risk but it could pay off, the only thing is that if the logic board is gone then the whole machine is aswell as a logic board replacement costs in the region of $400 I think...

    On the other hand it could be something really simple like bad RAM or a failing HD, in this case it would be worth pciking up if the price was low....

    But as previously mentioned it has a reserve and its anybody's guess as to what that could be///

    I was curious so I sent an email requesting the reserve amount. The response? Brace yourselves...








    "Hello i set it at $450"


    Good bye, I will buy one that works.
