Don't blame you. Guessing its the stupidly high spec one you advertised on here? Was nice for a serious gamer!

Aye Andre it is, did have a buyer from work but he's let us down, same reason why its up for sale in the first place. Never mind. Wanna buy it? lol :thumbsup:

Afraid not, 1) no cash for it, 2) no need for a spec that high 3) built myself a new pc in december
and furthermore due to purchasing a property i will be selling the PC possibly tomorrow to a mate (hope they dont let me down!) to fund a laptop. as the place we are buying is not really big enough to have a desk with a pc in it.

whatsThePoint;8001567
I did say people and didn't single you out as you could be honest for all i know :thumbsup:, but countless sellers on ebay sell pc's like your about to, then the next week they have another unwanted gift and guess what thats a pc/laptop as well, then the following week............

How do they get them then? This is not even released in the UK, genuinly was a gift, but not a very thought out one in the end.

Too far out of the price range, its a specialised comp not your normal packared bell lol.

was advertised here at one point but got absolutely hammered about potential dishonesty and obviously a very high price tag and basically a load of stupid comments as well. But obviously didnt sell on here anyway.

I'd agree I'd be scared of putting it on ebay, but then if you've asked around people you know and no one then not left with a great deal of options...could try AVForums though, lots of guys on there with cash, and then could say pick up only so its safer.

i dont what price your referring to, but theres alot of people on here, yes not as many as on ebay, but how do you know someone on here wont have it, theres comps, lappies in deals that touch on a thousand pounds and people buy

there it is again.
#28
I would give it a go on AVForums LLM. There are a few top computer buffs on there. Unfortunately it's not that busy. Or maybe try a cash converters or something? Just think of the paypal fees if you sold it on ebay!

ide be careful here andre, thats twice you have posted the link, it could be seen as trying to advertise it here

My husband wants to have it sitting in its box for 8 months whilst he fights wars, then he can come back and use it, i on the other hand want to offer my dad the money back (knowing he wont take it) then get Florida booked!

tbh you may get that even with advertising in the local rag or whatever ive know people to sel ps3 etc in free papers to be left with half the money in duff notes

if someone comes to collect i advise you to have a couple of rugged looking geezers present;-)

I ain't selling on here, i could understand mods thinking that if it was me posting the links, but Andre is not connected to me. <<< mods please read.

I would definitely look at selling it on AV forums first as there are some good people on there and you can see there feedback,Also a lot of people from here frequent the forums plus you will have no fees,

Twice yes, because LLM said she could not see the first one. And how am I advertising it (or could be construed) its on the same page, i have nothing to do with LLM, and no profit to be made from it, nor do I have any interest in it. Furthermore the thread is locked and 10 weeks old. Plus LLM has said she tried selling on here and does not want to try again. :thumbsup:
