    iBook value

    I don't think you should have set the starting bid so high. Maybe set the starting bid at $450 with possibly a $500 reserve, if you set a reserve at all. The computer is probably worth about $600-$650 in total, maybe a little bit more, so setting the first bid that high is not a good idea. You should consider posting more pictures and emphasize its good condition, if it is in fact that good. Say whether there are scratches or dead pixels. As is, you may get a bid in the last day or two, but I hope your reserve is not higher than $600. Good luck!

    Always post a picture of a laptop with the screen on and preforably an eye catching background.

    Thanks for all your advice. I made a few edits to the price and description. I will change the photo tomorrow.

    Best regards,

    David
