    I thought it was actually someone trying to sell it at that price, but the starting price was actually just 0.99 cents. People just keep bidding it up and most likely are bids that will never be paid. If the guy even thinks that the bidder will ever pay he is lying to himself xP

    Wut...

    What is this I don't even!

    Gah, cannot comprehend why anyone would pay $1,025 for an iPad 2 Box (>Implying that the box is already empty, or will be empty before the buyer recieves it), let alone an iPad2

    *Faints at inability to comprehend it all*

    looks like the last couple of guys are fake bidders
    the majority of people thought it was probably an ipad 2 (not just a box) though and were trying to get a god deal on it

    IMO the bidding went crazy after 10 dollars.

    Maybe *Perfect Condition* is code for "Brick of coke" [​IMG]

    I remember hearing something on the local news years ago about a similar situation where a guy bought an original X-Box Box on ebay because he thought the second "Box" was a typo.

    the buyer's just not going to pay him when they realize it's just the box.
    i know it's stupid of the buyer to not have read the description, but it's really not a big deal.
    just contact the seller saying he doesn't want to pay for the box.
    it's not like they legally have to pay for it just because they won the bid.
    oh no, negative feedback.

    wat.

    I'd love to see the reaction of the buyer once he finds out it's only a box with nothing but a manual. [​IMG]

    If you look at the bidders it's clear they're bidding "just for the lulz". They won't pay him $1k.

    Raise your hand if you actually think the last bidders are real.

    Makes me remember a friend who sold his Xbox box for 400 bucks. The guy who he sold it to tried to get his money back but my friend had specifically mentioned it was just the box on more than one instance.

    My iPad 2 box is the 64GB one, does that mean its worth more than the 32GB box he just sold? Maybe I can get even more for mine [​IMG]

    Fake bids guys. The people bidding probably won't pay the 1000 dollars.
