    It's not like me to laugh at things like this, but this ebay listing really made me chuckle. The best part is the question the seller received and the answer. In case you can't or don't want to log in to read the dialogue:

    Good lord, I got my iMac G4 800 MHz for $300 off of here ages ago or was it $400 shipped.

    I forget.

    I sold my 20" iMac G4 with 1.25 gb ram for $450

    Too bad for him. He paid a good amount of money to make a $900 listing that won't be sold.

    You should see the local papers for computers for sale by individuals...

    "Let's see, I paid $1500 for this 486 computer. So, I want $1200 for it..." too bad it's 2009... :eek:

    I asked a question regarding the Mac2Sell value and the 4 times higher firm "Buy It Now" price.

    It is eBay, so someone might be stupid enough to buy it.

    It's obvious that the high price is to get attention.

    Then it will sell for the going rate, maybe more because demand is higher.

    You've played into his hands.

    I personally would mess up his auction by fake bidding, if I really cared.
