It's a long story, but in a nutshell, here it is:  My aunt (who shall remain anonymous) bought me a new PC (not a monitor, or a printer, or anything else; the PC alone!) for about $1,250 before rebates ($100).  She got me this new system as a Christmas gift, provided I let go of my old system for the purpose of selling it for enough cash to offset the one-and-a-quarter grand some.

Soon after I got home, our neighbor-slash-best-friend (who also shall remain nameless) learned of the new system, and its stipulations, and immediately said "I want the old system; how much would you like for it?"  I said the most appropriate thing in mind for a 1.2GHz Athlon system with a 60-gig HD and 768 megs of ram: "$200."  "I'LL TAKE IT!!!"  Yes, she was that desparate!  In fact, she told me to call my aunt so she'll 'do business' with her.  She then decided, due to her eBay studies of similar systems (She too, needed only the system!), to raise the price to $250!  With people like her, who needs eBay? :P

Anyway, she'll be ready to transfer the cash to me on the 29th, with me transferring said cash to my aunt afterwards.  Soon my new All-In-Wonder thing might potentially be a reality! XD
