I thought you were referring to the one that went for $465. Who is trying to sell what for a half a million?

I always though that was a joke listing, but they keep listing it, so maybe not.

It just takes that one buyer, though.

I just checked his other listings. While they seem better prices, they are all "rare finds".

I guess they thought the tag that said "White" denoted the color of the machine.

Great price too.

This auction has been relisted on ebay for nearly a year. In previous listings the guy stated he was going through a rough time and was waiting for a millionaire to see his listing and feel sorry for him, enough to send him the money as a good will gesture. Good luck with that!
