There was another auction house (onsale.com, IIRC) - they sold a  lot of Gateway refurbs, pieces back in the day - and they had an interesting feature, you could post a message with your bid. I once bid up a DVD drive for my laptop, all the while the other bidder was trying to convince me it wouldn't work for playing DVDs in the laptop (data only), and he needed it for a project he was working on...

It was interesting ;^)
