@karkyco:

Some people think Craigslist and places like CAG are perfect to sell their crap since they're too lazy or greedy (they want profits with no fees) to put said crap on ebay.

/obvious

Nearest Craigslists are Nashville and Indy, and they both seem to be a friggin' joke.

Agreed - that's why I prefer it too, at least with some things, since it is SO much easier dealing local, especially in a big city like LA where you can command the eBay prices. eBay can be sketchy, paypal is horrendous, and I like getting straight cash without having to deal with shipping, scammers, fees etc.

I certainly hope you read the ad completely, since they said they're selling it for $10, not the $1 listed in the title.

Someone did that locally with an assload of games and systems recently, so I said 'I'd like it for the amount listed in your title' as my simple but to the point response.

Do you think I ever received a response from that email? LMFAO

$5 off retail is a deal? Whatever....but personally, I would've asked for the title sale price of $1, but that's just cause I'm a true cheapass.

I don't think people have realized they dropped the PSP's price to $169.99. I regularly see console only for $200-250.

I want a used one for $80ish so I can have N64 on the go.

edit: the best deals are found near universities, full of college students trying to make a quick buck.

Most of 'em are $2ish each on eBay. I've been on a big SegaCD kick lately, though. If you don't want them, can you let me know? I'm trying to build my collection (up to 25 so far!) Thanks.

I just found a craigslist listing with Nintendo 64. It's a N64 with two controllers, five games, adapter, and system for $75. The games are Glover, Diddy Kong Racing, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Star Wars Rogue Squadron. I've asked the seller if he would be willing to lower his price a little (since he's local and it's not like driving from north Atlanta to south Atlanta to sell it).

I suspect this seller is basing his pricing on eBay. :roll:

He still won't budge on the price and he claims there's someone else interested. Argh

There is a person selling a Macbook Pro laptop for $2400 on craigslist.

I bought this Macbook Pro less than five weeks ago and it has seen little use since. Infact, it's only been out of the case a handful of times. I thought I was going to need this bad boy more than I ended up. My wife also recently acquired a very nice iMac, so this little guy really is not going to see it's full potential with me. I've tried very hard over the last week to justify keeping this machine around, but I have to let it go. I really want to see this machine to go a deserving owner. With the full AppleCare warranty and extras that I have included with this computer, I don't think you'll be unhappy if you buy it. :) Feel free to email me if you have any questions at all and I will respond promptly.


It comes with the 3 years of apple care, iskin keyboard cover, and screen protector. It is the newest macbook pro that apple has on their website and it is the $2800 model. Would it be worth buying this laptop if I can get the guy to come down on his price some?

Having to pay for summer school is really kicking my ass right now, $1500 for two classes; one three week class and the other is four weeks. Should I grab it if I can get him to take $2000 for it? This would be my first mac so I'm not for sure if that is a good price for it or not...

*edit*
actually this is the mid-range Macbook pro that sells for $2500

Here are the specs on the laptop he is selling:


* 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
* 4MB shared level 2 cache
* 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300)
* 120GB 5400 rpm hard drive
* 15.4-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
* 1440 by 900 pixels
* Ati Mobility Radeon X1600
* 256MB of GDDR3 Ram
* Built in iSight video camera
* Slot loading 6x-SuperDrive (DVD+R DL/DVD+RW/CD-RW)
* ExpressCard/34 slot, Firewire 800 port, Firewire 400 port, Two USB 2.0 ports
* DVI port; DVI to VGA adapter included
* Optical digital audio input/line in
* Optical digital audio output/headphone out
* Built in 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet
* Built in Airport Extreme
* Built in Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate)
* Backlit illuminated keyboard and ambient light sensor
* Apple Remote
* Preinstalled Mac OS X 10.4.9 and other bundled software
* 3 years of AppleCare included!
* iSkin Keyboard Protector included
* Screen Protector Included
* Laptop Case Included

He did add an extra gig of ram and added a better graphics card. I'm not for sure if he added anything else to it or not...

Yeah, sure there is. You should reply that when he gets tired of posting the same ad for the next 12 months without any bites, he should hit you up.

Perhaps then he will be willing to negotiate a more suitable price (like $25-30 MAX)

Haha, yeah, generally what I tell people is, "Drop me an email when you still have it next week."

They usually get back to me in a couple of days with a more reasonable price. Its how I got my CD-X and games for $90 instead of the $190 asking price.

I got a core Xbox 360 last week for $100, it came with everything except a controller. The guy said it was broken but I have been running it for hours and have had no problems at all. I was planning on selling it for like $175 but I think ill keep it as a back up.

Your nuts lol back in the day when that game came out it was great and had some pretty " ahead of it's time" mechanics to it that are used even today still..

Would it hold up today probably not but it was a gem for it's time , now all Nintendo needs to do is port over an english version of part 3

Should I take this guy up on his offer?

I offered $50 & he countered w/ 70, but he doesnt even know if all of them work or not. Should I take the risk?

I doubt any of them work. The NES-es are guaranteed duds, and those PSXs look suspect. Does he have any of the power cords, TV cables, controllers for any of them? It looks like a dealer trying to get rid of his non-working junk.

PS2 system plus games & acc listed for $200
All games were in mint condition and the only GH was RE1. He had Intelligent Qube on the listing too, but someone must have told him what it was worth. Kind of peeved me that he wanted the same price without IQ; totally refused to negotiate. I bit because my old PS2 crapped out, and I only already had FFO and Tekken4.

PS1:
Resident Evil: Director's Cut (GH)
Resident Evil 2
Parasite Eve
Final Fantasy Origins (FF 1&2)
Final Fantasy 7,8,9

PS2:
Final Fantasy 10
Final Fantasy 10-2
Final Fantasy 12
Final Fantasy 12 Game Guide
Final Fantasy 12 Art Collection
Devil May Cry 1,2,3
Tekken Tag Tournament
Tekken 4
Silent Hill 2,3

Accessories:
PS1 Sony Memory Card
PS1 Controller (Charcol Color)
PS2 8MB Sony Memory Card
Dual Shock2 Analog Controller
DVD Software CD
DVD Remote/Receiver

Some really sweet games in there, just wish I could have talked him down some.
