Craigslist strikes again

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So browsing my local craigslist and i come across this... http://greatfalls.craigslist.org/sys/4013465482.html

Not only is he way overcharging in the first place but all the hardware is at least a few years out of date but even with the perfs I can't see how it cost over 3 G's when he got it in the first place.

 

Mostly I'm writing this because I hate how some people can and will try to take advantage of others that have no idea, Not to say i haven't done that when i was younger but since then i know right from wrong. 

 

If anyone has other great Craigslist posts like this feel free to post them here, I know that i've seen some of these lately but i can't find a recent one to post this in.

 

Amazing what people think they can get away with, have fun reading and facepalming!

"Almost brand new" suuurrrreee

Yea the 460 is at least 3 years old to begin with and the bull about not knowing the in's and out's, if you know your gfx card then i'm pretty sure you know everything else in your system.

I don't like his attitude ( the way he wrote it). You can tell from miles, he thinks his shit don't stink. Damn punk thanks he is so cool by ripping people off. Not cool

We get it, people put overpriced stuff on craigslist, why do we need a separate topic for each different add? There's literally a different topic every day.

The parts may only be worth $350 but he put the stickers that came with his parts on the case. It's a well known fact in import car tuning culture that stickers make your car better, he has applied the same idea to computers. These components may seem terrible but they might be super binned and capable of mind boggling overclocks, thus justifying the price.

Yea, I don't get why case badges are still awarded with components, I don't know about anyone else but due to my minimalistic style every 

laptop I've owned has gotten all stickers and such removed instantly. Personally i don't see the appeal in them but someone prove me wrong.

I read this in Jeremys' voice and laughed even harder.
