Is that the same guy who buys things from ebay to resell them in Brazil for twice the normal price?

I do not intend to make a apology of the price chosen by the seller, but the fact is that the price on Amazon is $ 749.99 . With fees and transportation, arrives in Brazil as shown below:

Total before tax: BRL 2.521,75
Estimated tax to be collected: BRL 0,00

Insanity is everywhere online auctions are. Witness: this.

Sure, I'd like one. It's a piece of RPN history. That's a lot of airline tickets, museum passes, and hotels though.

Nigel Tout has a good page on his and that's all I can afford. Still; I wish I had walked into the junque shop that the seller did, about five minutes earlier.

Insane taxes might explain overall insanity:
