After “donating” my MBP14 to a needy family member, and despite four successful days with the SP8, Apple won (AGAIN) with the help of Best Buy ($1599 for a binned special). The Surface Pro 8 goes to eBay Heaven (or h*ll as I usually call it) on Friday for a Labor Day try, but with a stop here for my friends.

Additional comments about the item: Reason for sale and warranty information are above. It’s a great system, but I drank the Apple Kool-Aid and with this sale will be sentenced to Apple-traz (with a smile on my face).
Attention Buyers: Please do not offer less than what the original poster asked for unless they specify “Best Offer” or “Nearest Offer”. If you have a question about the price of an item please private message the original poster.
With the rumor that August 4th is AMD’s big “reveal day,” I might have a 5950X and a 3090 FE on here for sale to offload to the community in preparation for upgrading to a 7950X and next-gen NVIDIA or AMD card in next couple of months.
I noticed this post shows “closed” (lock icon next to the title). I tried to unlock/reopen it, but I only saw an option “close”. I closed and reopened it (turned it off and on again… ), but no change. So not sure if non-mods can post here now tbh.
Seriously, as I wrote elsewhere you might consider just keeping it. Cheaper in the long run than buying/reselling.
I don’t like to think about the wasted money as I flip-flopped all over the place in the past year and a half. Hopefully with my full-on Apple ecosystem plus a capable Windows laptop for light gaming & anything else Windows-only I can settle down until I actually need an upgrade.
It’s way too soon to claim I’ve accomplished anything. Ask again in six months if I haven’t switched devices again without it being an upgrade of my current setup. (e.g. I planned from the outset to move up to a better Mac mini eventually.)
I’ll take it if its still available at that price. I have some money in paypal that I was paid and I don’t know how to access it but I’m sure I can figure it out. My youngest daughter is looking for a notebook and I think this would be perfect for her.
Is it necessary to “archive” these posts? Just changing the title to “Sold” has pretty much the same effect I’d think. Reason for not archiving: it looks like archiving removes those funny reaction emoji.
