I won't think ebay would make such a joke but 96k is insane indeed.

This is as stupid as people gold & diamond plating their iPhones. Instead of spending the money on Women's Shelter or other worthy charities, this guy spend it on something that will be outdated in 2 years.

Or AMD bidding on their own engineering sample while at the same time putting a complaint through ebay. I hope its something like this vs some stupidly rich idiot jumping to be first.

more than likely the seller was bidding on his own item, no feedback left for it.. for a $100,000 item, I sure would bother to leave feedback.. I call fake.

Plus everyone bidding on the item had a fairly low ebay score too.. botted accounts?
