Yeah, just checked the listing again. I'm surprised it lasted this long. I put a non working A4000 on Ebay last winter that needed a CPU card and had a broken power supply and maybe other issues that made it a much bigger project than this A3000. I listed at the exact same price BIN price and it sold within minutes.

The price is right. The problem with 3000's is that the battery is around vital components and there is a layer of traces between the mb.

From my experience. Surface damage where the mb coating is gone and looks nasty is better than seeing very minor damage. The acid had to go somewhere. The failure rate for hidden damage is higher than what you can't see.

Sad to say but every 3000 I have come across has had battery damage. Most things can be repaired but you will have to learn how to solder and read a schematic. I prefer the west Chester builds over the Hong Kong ones.

Learn something new everyday! I didn't even know that a run of A3k's were produced in Hong Kong.

What was the "buy it now" price out of curiosity? Curious what it actually went for.

Well, here's another one in a similar price range. Nicer overall but severe battery damage which the seller has honestly described as messing up the 31khz vga out. I took one look at the photo of the pit in the MB and it's obvious how bad it is. Otherwise real clean.

Looks like this one is a good project A3000 for someone with the paticience to set it up and then shop around for a good A3000 motherboard to fix the 31khz out and whatever else the battery messed up.
