Although I know you can get some fabulous deals on ebay (and I’ve gotten a couple for my trip), I rarely use it because it just seems like so much PRESSURE.  You have to keep looking all the time and someone almost always swoops in at the last minute to out bid you and then you’re screwed.  Too much for me…I’d rather just go to the store even if I have to pay a bit more.

Well, if I thought buying on Ebay was stressful, it’s nothing in comparison to selling!  With selling, not only am I monitoring it constantly but I’m worried about getting a good price and if the person is going to screw me and if something bad is going to happen…I swear, it’s giving me grey hair!

But, it will all be worth it if I can unload this laptop!  I almost wish I could keep it because it’s a great machine, but by selling it I’ll fund about a month worth of travel so off it goes.  So far it’s up to $202.50.

Anyone want to take bets on how many times I’ll check this auction before it ends on Thursday?  I’m guessing it’ll be close to triple digits!

BTW – if anyone is in the market for a brand spanking new laptop, check it out.
