I have sold lots of computers and computer parts on Craigslist, and a few times on this forum, and my asking prices are usually 5 to 10 percent lower than the best prices on eBay.
The fastest processors (i.e. the fastest for Pentium M machines, or Core Duo machines, etc.) are always insanely expensive. The best thing to do is to be patient and check eBay periodically.
Thank you. When I have some spare cash I will try a WTB ad here on the forum marketplace. CPU is the last thing I plan to do as far as upgrading and messing anyways, so I'll have plenty of time to think about whether or not it's worth it, and by then the price should hopefully come down a little.
The T9400 is by no means a bad CPU for what I do, but I want to get as much performance out of this laptop that I can to keep it around for a few years. It really would be ideal to put a new desktop together, but than I would need to start everything from scratch as far as components, and I would also need a monitor which just amounts to a bit much for me at the moment.
Oh, just looked at ebay US, and the prices are cheaper, (as always
) going for sub-$200 buy it now. This should work out well for me as the majority of the TPF Marketplace is US-based, and shipping on such a small item shouldn't hurt me too much.
