Wow, some kid is really going to miss his 3DS after today! There was an ad posted for a 3DS for $40 and the ad stated
that it powered up and the wifi worked, it just wouldn't play games. I checked later and they had lowered the price to $25.
We did a little research at work and figured if the game slot/drive was bad, I could get one for $12 and my coworker
would handle the disassembly and soldering.
I countered with $10 mentioning what it would cost me to fix it and get a charging cord (which wasn't included). They countered
at $15. I told them I would take it for $15 if it still had some charge left and I could see that it worked. Their reply was
"OK, $10". I was more than happy to set up a time to meet and picked it up.
I got back in my car to look at it and the screens were dirty, but not scratched up and the stylus was still in the slot. I hit
the power button and it fired up! Nothing great gamewise on it, but it was working. When I got home, I grabbed a
game and threw it in. Unbelievably, it worked without hesitation.
All I need a charger and I have a perfectly working 3DS for $10!!! She looked pretty ragged so she may have been
looking for a quick buck, but I really don't care now.
