Andre and craigslist...

I'm a sucker for craigslist. I've said before I feel that if you pass up a chance to get something when you can for below price on something you want, you've pretty much wasted that money. Although that's not the case this situation, it's kind of a case by case thing.


But anyways I been on the hunt like bald eagle eagle for a macbook pro. After squirreling away most of that suprise $9k on fashion, garage door openers, sneakers, dating and mutual funds. My budget is looking kind of slim for a laptop. I really hate that money can burn like it does.... Plus this sega genesis laptop I use is has lost it's hipster/vintage/kitchy appeal.

So I post on craigslist this 'the craigslist ad'

and I get a txt... 08 model 4g with leopard, final cut pro, CS4, after effects toast and other stuff. asking $600

So my first thought is 'somebody at the art institute either needs rent money or just charged their laptop to the game. Either way... So the chick stays downtown and wants me to meet her at the popular destination lenox mall. So I txt back like...

Perfect, I'll meet you at the apple store.

So hopefully I don't get murdered

I've gotten a lot of great things on craigslist...as a matter of fact, I found a new awesome hairstylist there (and i had to travel to her house...talk about leap of faith).

That all goes to say I definitely endorse Craigslist.

Just see if theres a way you can fire up the computer before you make that final deal. But otherwise sounds like a good deal...!!
