Upgraded eMac - $100 NEW PRICE

SOLD ON CRAIGSLIST


My eMac has been a reliable performer for a few years but it's time to part ways and let someone else enjoy it. If I didn't have to rearrange my office to fit in our new printer, I would keep it but the desk it resides on has to go and it's too good of a computer to "recycle" or just store away. The computer is very clean, and resided in a non-smoking office. Very perky for it's age, makes a great email, surfer machine with it's 17" screen. We used it for compressing and burning DVD's.

Here are the specs - 17" CRT, G4 800MHz, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD, DVD-R, Airport Card and that special riser stand that lifts the computer off the desk and allows it to swivel to multiple angles. A clean install of OS 10.5.8.


I am willing to ship but that will be at the buyer's expense. Local delivery or pickup is preferred (Barrie/GTA area)

SOLD - on craigslist (within two days too).

(warning unprovoked rant following)

Sometimes I wonder why I bother listing anything for sale here.

Does anyone actually have success selling things here? I'm trying not to sound like sour grapes but the classified section sure doesn't move stuff like it used to. I try to keep the faith and list what I have for sale and buy stuff too ... but I get ZERO interest here. Sure I get the pixel peepers but nothing else. After posting here and twiddling my thumbs, I have relisted the items I try to sell on Craigslist and it's usually gone in days and in a few cases minutes after posting an ad there.

And don't even get me started on trying to buy here - that's a complete hit and miss effort - the item's usually long sold but the ad's still up because the OP can't change the title or get the thread locked as sold.

(end rant)

The difficulty is with the item itself. RAM or anything small is easy to sell provided you are willing to ship. Anything set for 'local only,' regardless of the size, is going to have a very limited audience in comparison to Craigslist or other assorted classifieds.

Especially a first gen. eMac that weighs in at 50+ pounds and a good jar in shipping could trigger the raster shift issue, thus making local only, a real imperative.
