Omg how freakin lucky is that bidder?!?!? The guy had decent rep too.....even if the person wasnt gonna use it, they couldve easily resold it for more. I wish i had 1k today, lol i was kinda upset cause i got like 5k in a trust fund my uncle put for me that i couldnt touch till im 18 for my graduation gift, crap 3 months later and i wouldve been able to withdraw that money to buy this baby!
you couldnt built it yourself for that price however keep in mind that used electronics drop in value by quite a bit. with that said i agree $1500 is possible in the right market assuming good condition.
