Been looking at the e2055. they have been selling used on ebay for less than 400 for a few months now. Does anyone have a deal like this for around the same price or better. There are none for sale right now and I am growing impatient.

I highly doubt you will find that PC for $400 (or less). It is by no means top of the line, but it is pretty nice. I haven't priced it out, but I am fairly certain that the parts alone are more than $400 (probably more like $600-$700).

Show me a link if you do find it, though.

EDIT: Actually, I found some...

Thats nice that you doubt I will find one. The fact is that they are out there. And like I said, they are used. You can get them new for $650.

Maybe used... but I still think you would need to have a large stroke of luck to get it for $400 or less. I am pretty sure on Ebay, unless the bidders fall asleep, most of the time it will get much higher than that in a bidding war.

But, stranger things have happened. Good luck!

The last one I actually watched went for $333 on ebay. The ones before that sold a few months ago were $360-$380.

Well, if you see more than one, let me know. That is a good value.
