So I went to a few garage sales this weekend. One in particular caught my eye while looking through kijiji. The person was selling an Alienware laptop (did a bit of research and it was a m17x with a i7 2670qm). I showed up this morning and it was still there. But I also saw a bunch of other stuff there such as 1080p monitors and flight simulation joysticks and such. Here is what I got
- Saitek X55 Rhino (the joystick and thrust controller) $10 (https://c1.neweggimages.com/ProductImage/26-102-073-13.jpg)
- Logitech Extreme 3d pro joystick $2.5
- LG 1080p 21.5" monitor $2.5
- 2 Samsung syncmaster 21.5" 1080p monitors FREE
So the total that I spent was $15 and I got 3 1080p monitors and 2 joysticks + a thrust controller. Overall I think it was a pretty good haul. In hindsight there was a Razer Kraken headset for sale for about $5 that I probably could have talked him down to about $2.5. But I decided not to get it, what a shame. Pretty happy about what I got though, and hope to get some money from flipping some of the monitors (will be keeping the flight stuff). Also I didn't get the alienware laptop, mainly because he wanted $300 for it and I wasn't in the mood to talk him down to around $100.
