All P4 3.6's run the Prescott core I believe.. A lot could be told from the Motherboard Specs :cool:

R-bones where are you, you haven't replied to my pms, i need your shipping address, you asked for pics, and i can send them to ur email, which is undisclosed on MR. please send me an email at my address here, which is also my paypal address, so you can send me the payment, the powermac is boxed up, and i have already made a commitment to another sale that needs me to sell this to you for the price we negotiated.

i am not mad, just disappointed, because you made an agreement and now i haven't heard from you.

please email me to complete this deal,

thanks

Oh...we had traded actually for my Mac - I already sent it and he's sending the PC.
that is correct, the time when you backed out, i had started to make a deal with him, but then that went void when we made a deal, i come on this board maybe once a week so i am hardly here

Update - he has my Mac but still has not shipped his end of the deal for over a week.

This is getting a little rediculous, I shipped right after the weekend but no go from this guy for over a week, just excuses. I will keep the folks here updated. :(

Are you really that naive to ship your computer to someone you don't know? For your sake, I hope he ships the PC to you but honestly, I don't think he will. I would assume you would have used an escrow service or something of the sort..or traded in person. You seem like a chap who trusts people easily.. which isn't really that good in these times!

Why can't you call him and demand to know what is going on, since he all ready has your G5 in his profile? Please don't tell me you shipped him your machine without getting any contact details other than an address?

He really called the police? Good for him! I didn't know they dealt with this type of thing.

Sorry for being so damn slow, I'm on vacation and yes the machine has shipped with a valid tracking number. I can't unpack it until I get back, which will be several days after UPS will attempt a delivery. Just bad timing that's all.

Yeah, I'm with others here. Would only trade with people on MR under strict circumstances. A main one being the amount of time I've seen them on the forums. Definitely wouldn't trade with a newbie. I'd tend to trust big names like Arn, Edesignuk, Doctor Q (Sorry to other people I haven't mentioned, there are too many ;) )

so i take it that R-bones hasn't come through or what has happened, because i was originally going to make a deal with him, and i am glad i didn't either way.
