Yep, that's my point. People can be pretty unrealistic about what price they can get for used technology. If this T1 was purchased when it was a new model and if it wasn't on sale, it was $139 plus tax. About $158 with tax (assuming it was purchased in Ontario). At that time, a hundred bucks would have been a good price and easy to get if one was reselling. Now it's an older item (still great, though; I chose it over a T2 because I prefer the feature set) and can be had for $79 with a warranty and cover. I just wanted to let the OP know that that price is not going to get it sold.
