I was in the process of putting some items up for sale on eBay, and I was searching to see what 3.2 Ghz Pentium 4 CPUs were going for. I came across this lot of CPUs, and I just had to post this picture – take a look at the maimed pins on this thing:
For those that might not know, those small gold pins are supposed to be sticking straight up – even if a few are bent/broken, the processor is basically useless (though sometimes you can salvage the CPU if no pins are broken). The really crazy part? There are people bidding on this lot – they must be hoping the others are in better shape…only on eBay, the greatest online marketplace in the world!
