Subject:Well, that was fast...
Time:06:06 pm
Last night I listed the two G4 laptops on eBay. This morning I woke up to two offers for the PowerBook, decided to wait until I'd got some boxes before replying. By the time I went out, got a couple of boxes (which I unfortunately had to buy, the dustman had been round all the local shops by the time I went out), and got home someone else had bid well over the price I'd set for automatic acceptance. Got it packed and sent by 3.30 or so. I thought I'd set the price realistically at £35, I was obviously too pessimistic, but never mind. Assuming I sell the iBook I'm going to make a reasonable profit, and without a huge amount of effort, which is always nice.

In other news the zip drive I thought might be unsellable was just bid up to £20. Slightly boggled...

Pretty sure zip drives sell to people who need to read a zip disk right now. I bought an antique camcorder under similar circumstances a few years ago (needed the data, couldn't find my identical one, reckoned I could resell later).

I sold my G4 Powerbook on the local FB group for £75, which means that at the time I was confident it would get at least £100 + shipping on eBay. And that was only a year or so ago so my guess you wildly underpriced it.

12" and there are a lot of others unsold - it went for £33 which more than covers my costs, so I'm not going to complain.
