Pretty nice looking. To bad the guy is basicly overpricing because he wasted his time and money to do extra stuff with it.

    Well, I don't like the keyboard. That paint job however is very slick, reminds me of the <a href="http://alienware.com/main/system_pages/area51-m.asp"; target="_blank">alienware</a> portable, but a richer color.

    interesting. there are a lot of people who would be willing to pay extra for a unique iBook. and many of the people with extra money don't have the extra time to do it themselves.



    i like it.

    The Buy It Now price is a little high, but it's a unique thing to try and attach a value to. Spec-wise of course, it's too much. But as alcimedes said, it might be worth that much to someone out there.



    Many people do that with their Buy It Now price anyway. You might get lucky and have someone snap it up. It's worth a shot. The $1000 reserve isn't too crazy... although I don't know why people say what their reserve is...

    One good reason to post your reserve-avoid getting 20 emails per auction asking "So what's your reserve?"

    why don't they just cut the reserve shit and start the price at the reserve. it seems stupid to me. especially when its very far away (percent wise). tho i dont ebay much, when i did sell shit i'd start it where i was least willing to sell at, and all went well.

    When you start the auction higher, you pay more in listing fees.



    A reserve also lets you keep that slightly inflated Buy It Now price up longer. If you have no reserve, the first little bid will take that option off the table.



    When you start an auction high to start with, you turn off alot of people. They'll look elsewhere and bid on the lower priced auctions. People don't want to bid high when an auction has 2 days+ left - they want to catch the auction in it's final stages. That's where the action is. Get a nice little bidding war going on in the last couple of hours.



    People just can't help themselves on eBay.



    You're not getting MY iMac!!! *BID* *BID* *BID*
