Yeah, sometimes I think people ask more than is reasonable, at least to me. I have noticed a general trend of prices going up on eBay lately. Might just be what I'm looking at.
Guess I'll hang on to mine for at least a couple of years and see if the value skyrockets. I offered it to a couple of people that were interested in it, a while back (sub $1K) and nothing panned out. Might be a blessing in disguise.
I got a "deal" so it's not hurting anything right where it is.
