    Hi

    I have a 2010 2.15inch iMac.

    It's a 3.06ghz i3 with 8GB of RAM.
    I've got the Mouse, Keyboard and Original box.
    It's running Mavericks

    It has a slight screen issue where there's a small ray of light visible in the top left of the screen (will try to get screenshots). It also has a hardly noticable yellow tint in one corner (thought i'd be honest and mention it). These 2 issues dont really interfere with day to day use but I can understand it may be an issue for some users.

    It's otherwise in very good condition and runs perfectly.

    I want to gauge interest at around the quoted price of £350. I'm open to people suggesting what the fair price of this machine is.

    EDIT: now with images of the problem

    Thanks

    Price and currency: £350
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Cash
    Location: Heathrow

    Now with pictures of the screen problem. It's really not that bad, especially if you're looking for a budget computer, otherwise the machine is in great condition physically.

    Let me know if anyone wants some more specific pictures of the machine.

    Hi mate. to be honest, the only thing i'm really looking for is a PS4 if I can get one at a good price.

    I totally get your situation though, I was once in the same boat!

    I wanted this to replace my daughter's iMac which has finally given up. Having researched the issue with the screen, it seems to be a common fault (which keeps deteriorating) with these iMacs and usually the only cure is a new screen. There are plenty on that auction site with a similar issue but would rather not buy from there. Upping my initial offer to £275 for cash on collection.

    Ok i'll accept that price. One thing though, I don't want to let go of this until my new computer arrives. I'm really hoping it comes by the weekend but I won't know until tomorrow. Let me know if this is OK for you.

    OK, we have a deal. Hopefully you'll have your new computer by the weekend so we can conclude the deal early next week. Just let me know by PM when you're ready (as well as the address and suitable times for collection). Cheers! :smashin:

    I just thought i'd give you an update. Computers supposed to be coming on tuesday. Hopefully it's OK and then I can sell this one.

    Do you want to see the iMac first or just pick it up boxed? Need any more pictures?

    Thanks for the update. If your new computer arrives on Tuesday, then we could arrange collection for either Wednesday or Friday. I prefer to see the iMac running first, if that's OK with you (I'm sure your description is there or thereabouts though). Since I'll have the opportunity to give it a quick check on collection, there's no need for any more pictures. Cheers

    Hi, i'm really sorry but i can no longer sell the iMac. I'm going to have to return the new one due to an unforeseen circumstance.

    Apologies for any inconvenience this caused.

    Hey??! You've already agreed to a deal. Care to clarify the reason why you are now not honouring our agreement?

    I have missed out on two similar iMacs elsewhere which went for less money because I agreed to buy yours. Have you contacted one of the Mods with a an explanation in line with the trading rules?

    Yes i'm sorry but my circumstances have changed.

    I've contacted a mod, he will decide if the reason for pulling out is good enough, otherwise i'll have to take a trading ban and/or the negative feedback that goes with this.

    I have received the PM from @thedon_1 explaining the situation. It's not an ideal situation to be selling an item before the new one arrives, normally we'd expect the item to be ready to post/collect in case instances like this arrive.
    We are not in a position to force anything, all i can do is hand a months trading ban to thedon_1 for failing to uphold an agreed deal.

    Thread will be closed and archived.
