I guess I need to show what I have acquired over the past few months.

February:
After years of wanting one. I finally got a Laserdisc player for free (sort of) back on February 4.
Specifically, I got a Pioneer CLD-V2400 Laserdisc player.

On February 9, I purchased a 1998 Mercury Sable for $1500

March:
I picked up a "iPod Car Charger" for $1 at a local flea market style store. Turned out to be a Belkin TuneBase FM Transmitter with ClearScan. (Which I already suspected it was some sort of FM transmitter when I first saw it.)


April:
On April 7, I got the following items:
PS2 fat with no controller and video cable (had power cable) for $10.
Activision Anthology for a $1.99 at Gamestop.

Between April 21-22, I got all of this....
Saturday (April 21):
Went to a local Goodwill store, Got a used copy of Jet Moto 3 (PS1) for $2.50. And a got a used USB to wall adapter for $1.

After going to Goodwill, there was a yard sale nearby. For a grand total of $1.75. I got the following games from the yard sale: Metal Gear Solid: Greatest Hits edition (PS1), Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PS2), PSone Demo CD (PS1), and ATV Offload Fury 2 (PS2).
After going by another yard sale, then another store. (This time it was a consignment store.) I went to the third and last yard sale of the day. At that yard sale. I got a awesome new (it still had the tag and stickers) Superman hoodie jacket for $5.

Sunday (April 22):
I got a 12.1" Apple iBook for free. (To be more precise, it's a iBook G3/700 (Opaque 16 VRAM/Late 2002 - Opaque White))
Spoiler:
Although I was already told it was going to be given to me a few weeks prior. I finally received it that day.
The guy who gave it to me said the iBook more than likely has a problem, but he can't be for sure. But I can't test it since when he gave me it, he said he lost the wall charger for it. And it might take him a while to find it.
On April 28, I got all of this for $10 total:
Baron "Solid State 8" radio - 50 cents
shake flashlight - 25 cents
Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 (PS2) - $1
"Virtual Reality Sound Labs" Digital Audio Player (128mb internal) - 50 cents
Logitech USB mouse - 25 cents
Back to the Future (Factory Sealed VHS) - $1
Mothers Day pin (not pictured) - 50 cents
Furby - $1
INTV System III - $5
Spoiler:

May:
For $1.50, I got a Radio Shack 2-way AV switcher and Tekken TAG Tournament (PS2)

That about covers all of my recent finds until now. And the summer is still young.

If that mp3 player is what I think it is, I've totally been looking for one for years...

Oh yeah, he's got some good stuff. Used part of my credit for an Atari Lynx.

$100 is a pretty good deal for Kyle here imo. Last I checked they were around that on eBay, plus selling fees/hefty shipping cost/shipping hassle, on account of its massive size. I'd most likely take the same $100 local deal all day for mine and not have to worry about the headache.

Those were exactly my thoughts. Shipping it was going to be a huge pain. I considered listing on craigslist, but it's such a niche item.

Works out well for the shop owner, too - lots of people asking what it is.

No one has posted here in a while, so I thought I better throw something down.

Picked up a PS3 with a dead Blu-ray drive for $50. Figured it wouldn't be too hard to get a Blu-ray from another dead one. So far haven't found it, but whoever sold it to me left a signed in Netflix that they haven't used for a while so I'm borrowing that for a bit.

Put out a post on a used site asking for dead Ps3. Guy had a slim 250 gig that worked but had a "dead hard drive"

no cables included. found an old laptop cable that fits and powers it. Plugged in HDMI. Powered that SOB up and BAM it tells me that the files system needs to be repaired. An hour later she reboots with the same message. Held down the power button, selected restore PS3. reboot. Works, nothing wrong.

Total cost for working 250 gig ps3 slim?

Ten bucks.
