I'm wanting to see a G-19 when they come out. Seems to be the coolest keyboard short of the Optimus which is rediculious!

I had the G10 (I believe, the older one with LCD) and the paint wore off the keys in 60 days.

What comes around goes around. Some people just have to learn the hard way. And yes, "douchebag" is the definitive term. :mrgreen:

I had a guy on craigslist do the same to me. I called about a dual core AMD system (minus the RAM which I had), for $100 (it was easily worth $300-$400). By the time I got there to pick it up (no more than 15 minutes), he had sold it to someone else. My guess is he got a call after mine and a better offer. He never had the decency to "fess up".

Better deal or not, that dude(whom I will aptly name "Summer's Eve") should have at least called to let ya know he felt a bit douched and sold the item before you got there. I know I wouldn't have been happy if it was me..unhappy enough to kick down the the front door as a convenience fee

my response :"you couldn't have at least asked me to go higher because of a better offer? (qualifies as a Dick move, man)"

firstclass's "history" says that he read it and replied, but i got nothing in my inbox...

You're better off not arguing with people like that. Just take the high road and move on. It's just not worth it.
