EDIT 11/4/2013 - Prices Reduced! - Christmas shopping season starts in just a few short weeks, so I'm cutting the prices so you can save $$ for Christmas shopping. And shipping is on me (for buyers in the US).

Call it a "going out of business" sale if you will. Since I decided to turn over all future development of Home Server SMART and WindowSMART to the open source community, I'm divesting myself of much of my development and testing lab. I've got some really nice hardware here. There are two high-end development/gaming desktops and a laptop. The desktops include a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Shipping for the desktops (including monitors) is FREE for US buyers.

Please shoot me a private message if interested. Need more pictures? Please let me know in your message what you'd like to see more specifically.

UNIT 1 - $750 - GREAT for ripping movies, burning Blu-rays and gaming

==> Don't want the monitor or keyboard/mouse? Take $100 off if no monitor; take $30 off if no keyboard/mouse
==> Note that the "bubbling" you see in the pictures is the protective plastic that was on the PC when we got it. My wife doesn't believe in taking it off. You are free to remove it if you are the purchaser.

Folks when I put this gear out here, I was pricing them at what I thought was a fair price for the quality and value of the hardware. However, my wife reminded me today that Christmas shopping season will be in full swing in just a few weeks, and that gobbles up a lot of people's budgets.

With that in mind, I cut the price of the HP Envy desktop from $900 to $750, and the price of the HP d5200t from $800 to $650.

Do you think they're still priced too high? Make me an offer. I am open to considering reasonable offers. You folks here are friends and colleagues so I'd prefer to see someone from this community buy them. I also include a 14-day DOA warranty -- if the item dies within 14 days you can send it back for a full refund. And if you're in the US, there's no cost for shipping.
