    hey guys check this out.
    there are some people selling "G5"s on ebay for dirt cheap (like $200-$300). I'm pretty sure it's a scam, but does anyone know what's going on for sure? There's also a guy selling a "Dual G5 w/23" Studio Display" for $3000. This stuff has to be a scam. Check out the picture they're using in their auctions. Anyone seen this before?

    If anyone bought this, I wouldn't even feel sorry for them. It's amazing how these morons think they can put something like this up for sale. I mean, c'mon!

    Re: ebay g5

    I think you put your quotes in the wrong place. They're "selling" G5s. Of course it's a scam--and a well documented one at that.

    No, he put the quotes around G5 because if you look at the picture he attached, it's not a real G5.

    no, it's totally legit, people sell products that don't technically exist for 10% of what they should be worth all the time. I suggest you empty your bank accounts, sell your property, and invest everything in these.

    :rolleyes:

    did you honestly have to ask?

    Re: ebay g5

    Can you link to these auctions? I somehow have a hard time imagining they would use that ratty mock-up to sell the G5s. Even scammers know that a real picture is more enticing...

    PS: Are you just trying a really back-handed way of showing off a mock-up you did in an idle moment? ;)

    Right, but they're not actually selling it either. : )
