****  I have received numerous messages that the international shipping calculator is not working correctly and is quoting large $$.  I will only charge actual shipping costs by usps.com, ups.com or fedex.com.  I just did a calculation for someone to Germany and it was $60.00 despite the calculator coming in at 300$.  I suggest that if you wish to bid internationally that you contact me for a correct calculation.  I do not charge a handling fee.  The packed weight of this computer will not exceed 9 lbs.  It is quite light.

the subtitle accidently and incorrectly states no reserve (leftover from my ebay template).  This is, in fact, a reserve acution.
