The seller answered my email.  It's still available, but he's being crafty.  Wants an offer including shipping.  It's hard for me to tell how big this is from the picture.  Is it like a Sun 4/470 or a deskside Onyx?

I live in Virginia Beach; my son is in SE Pennsylvania.  If it's really big, I suppose that I/we *could* go pick it up...
