Selling my old computer for $500

UPDATE: The Computer Has Been Sold. But I'm going to leave this post up for historical reasons. I just posted the following ad on Craig's List, but I'd rather sell it to someone who reads my blog, so for you I'm lowering the price to $500 cash. You'll save $100 on an already great deal. And yes, this is the hardware from the hackintosh I was using up until a few weeks ago, though I'm selling it with Windows installed. If you want to try to install MacOS again, that's on you.


I'm selling my old computer, and I'll admit that it's making me a little sad to see it go. It's a fast and very quiet little machine whose parts are going for about $800 on ebay right now if you wanted to send it to the chop shop. And that's without the software I'm throwing in.

I'd rather not take the time to sell piecemeal so I'm going to give one of you a really good deal instead. Great for photo and video editing, web development, etc. I know because that's what I was using it for.

The case is a little banged up (I'm missing one drive bay cover from the front), but as Han Solo once said, "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."

  • Intel i7-920 @ 2.8GHz CPU
  • Asus P6T Workstation Professional Motherboard
  • 24GB of 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance RAM
  • Zotac GT430 1GB Video Card
  • 80GB Intel G2 SSD

Computer only. No Monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. Well I guess if you really needed a mouse I could dig an old one up, but I'd be willing to guess that if you're thinking about buying this machine, you've got one already. Works great, being sold as is, with a brand new install of Win7 with all updates installed.

$500. First come, first serve.  Email me  'bill at billwadman dot com'
