    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.

    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.

    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.

    there it is again.

    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!

    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

    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:
