I've sold a few things on ebay in the past, but this is a first for me: I'm selling a "big ticket" item: my Apple Titanium Powerbook. I started it at $1, it's up to $660. I expect it to go for somewhere between $1700-$2000. Here's what's strange to me: people are emailing me left and right asking me to end the auction early. I've gotten 8 emails so far, and the auction has only been up for about 10 hours. I don't get it? If I wanted to sell it for a fixed amount, I'd have put a buy it now on it with a high reserve. I've never had this response before - not from the music equipment things I've sold, or the cds or dvds. Is this normal for expensive items?
