HP2648 heartbreak

I think this is the terminal Jay bought from "beckysbusyathome" for $5
and $35 in shipping.

I bookmarked this sale as I was interested in the outcome.

I looked at her feedback and most people are happy with her stuff and
her shipping. However it looks like she wantdered into an estate sale
or something that she is not really familiar with.

As a regular user of ebay I would be inclined to take it to ebay
arbitration and/or negative feedback on bad shipping. Particularly
since shipping was so expensive.

If I was the buyer of the IBM portable I would worry about it arriving
in poor condition too. Also sold for $5.52 and $34.95 for shipping.

I think she needs some education in packing heavy stuff. Need to send
her the packing expectations FAQ that was posted.

I also consider the 26XX series of terminals somewhat fragile and
difficult to pack.

So sorry to hear of the destruction of it. I think those terminals are
quite rare, especially the 2648 as they were very expensive new.

Unfortunitely they are very valuable to scrappers for their pretty
gold plated HP boards.
