    Are you kidding? You want to sell a laptop that you can get for ~$1150 from Tigerdirect.com?

    He's found a sucker, why not?

    I would sell, then buy another one and pocket the extra.

    Sure, you found a buyer for $1600... Don't you have some ethical problems with ripping off the guy? Whatever floats your boat... If you want to find out what to replace the 7801u, then go to the Notebook discussion forum. This forum is only for Gateway machines. We don't talk about Sager here.

    So I don't recall asking about ethics in my post? Just opinions on what I should buy. The sager was a suggestion. I wasn't looking for you feelings on the subject masked just what people would suggest as an alternative. Why people show emotion on forums and cause drama I'll never know.

    I don't really care if you asked about ethics or not. That's really shady man.

    Shady or not, this is what's happening on probably about 75% of all transactions on eBay. In fact, this business model transcends well beyond eBay. To single this guy out is kinda silly when we're all getting shafted out of better deals on things we buy everyday. The guy who's buying this for $1600 is paying for what he perceives as convenience. If he were really that concerned about it, he'd do his homework. We all would, on everything we buy. But we don't.
