    As title. I am selling my 2007 20" iMac. The Mac has served me well since purchase, but over the last couple of months has developed a fault where as upon boot up it just sticks on a white screen after the start up chimes, and then displays a folder with a question mark in (I've tried getting into recovery menus on startup, but can't manage to do this). I have looked online to see what this means, and it seems to be a fauly HDD. Due to the recent purchase of a new laptop, and not really being that tech-savvy when it comes to iMacs, I'm looking to part with this, and will no doubt be letting someone who know how to fix this have an absolute bargain!

    Spec is as follows:

    20 Inch widescreen LCD display
    2.4GHz Intel Core2Duo processor
    3GB DDR2 SDRAM (upgraded from original 1GB)
    320GB Serial ATA Hard Drive
    Slot-loading Superdrive
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR3 SDRAM
    Plus all of the other usual stuff (iSight camera, Ethernet, Airport Extreme, Bluetooth).

    It's in good condition for its age, but does have a few marks on the back of the machine (as shown in the attached pic). Please note that I will be keeping the keyboard and mouse, so the iMac will only come with the remote, install discs and power lead. It will be packaged up in its original box too.

    I'm looking for £160 cash on collection for the iMac, and will not post due to the lack of couriers who will insure an item like this.

    Price and currency: £160
    Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
    Payment method: Cash on collection
    Location: Cannock, Staffordshire

    Right.....due to me being scammed online today, i am unable to collect or pay for this as agreed.

    midlandscomics and i have been in discussion and he's happy to hang on to it until the 1st March.

    Whilst i am grateful, i am still without funds until then, so i don't want to stand in the way of anyone else wanting to buy it and getting the cash to Paul earlier if he so wishes.

    Would a moderator please acknowledge and advise?

    Cheers

    Steve

    If the seller is happy with this then then the thread is best being closed to avoid other members attempting to offer, unless a deposit can be paid to secure. Otherwise, the thread may as well just stay open and the item available to all until you have the funds to buy and hope nobody nips in for it first.

    If you can both let me know, I'll take whatever action is appropriate.

    Regards

    mighynimrod has confirmed that he'll definitely buy the iMac 1st March, so I'm therefore happy to have the thread closed.

    What are the chances of you travelling down south towards London for any other reason? I'm in Cambridge and a 2-hour drive is a little over the top...

    Hi,

    No plans over the next few months I'm afraid. Having looked into things though, I would be willing to send the iMac by courier, if costs were covered.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the offer, but that's a bit too low - I'd accept £130 though.

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you - I've been away since Friday.

    I'm happy to accept £120 for it, seeing as you'd have to travel down.

    I'll be at work, but I can arrange for somebody to be in at home if you'd like to pick it up then.
