    You can bid but I'm sure it will near market value by the time it ends.

    I hope I do not offend anyone, but seeing as it is from Estonia and has 0 feedback, I would avoid.

    Just a hunch, but I would never go for it. In fact, I would be inclined to inspect a gadget before purchase. Anyhow, I digress. Just leave it lol

    A computer that can be well over 1000 dollars for under 300? hmm.
    The bid might go up, but it does seem fishy.

    I've placed the item in the watch list. I'll see how it plays on the next 2 days.
    But the fact the seller registered on eBay in December, had no feedback and a poorly written item description makes me wonder...

    Cheers

    I would not. Go for a reputable seller for anything on Ebay.

    0 feedbacks from a seller in Tartumaa, Estonia?
    What could possibly go wrong?? ;)

    Take a pass on it. I've read/heard that it can be a big hassle getting certain electronics through customs.

    I wouldn't really have problems with customs as I am in the EU also (Portugal).
    Today I checked again. Strange bid history. People with zero or low feedback bidding.

    Cheers.

    Item ended.
    Not me, but someone got a 2011 i7 for 500 euros...
    Curious about the future feedback of this user.

    Cheers
