    I'm hoping this isn't serious.

    But yeah I love this, I don't think eBay checked it before they posted it on their site :p

    ok its quite strange the number of people not actually noticing the crossed out price is cheaper than the new price. I can laugh at this from so many different point of views

    I guess there are still lots of people who have no clue about the multiple offers auctions out there... Oh well...
    It's not only for PC, it's for all kind of merchandise, even including houses or cars.
    Like the brand new Lotus I saw the other day, for sale at $999 but with a price tag at $1250. Everyone thought it was a joke until the buyer drove it to his driveway for a mere $1500 cash :)
    Lots of people clueless out there...

    A guy who won the auction. The sale price was $999 but there was a price tag at $1250. So what happened is people saw the $999 price and thought it was bogus. The problem is the Lotus at that price was really low, that's why the $1250 price after a couple of bid. But the majority of people didn't take it seriously because they were thinking why ones would pay $1250 if the price is $999? So they didn't bid. The winner took it paying $1500 cash...
    The Lotus had to go because the owner had a fiscal problem and he said he'd rather get a couple of thousands instead of taken away...He had a couple of hours ahead of him to get rid off it.

    I mean, same thing than the OP ad...

    So basically people didn't realise it was a Lotus worth $x,xxx/xx,xxx and just took note that it said it was retailed at $999.

    Damn they must have been gutted when they found out he got the Lotus :rolleyes:
