You see that you are wrong. This comes with it too.

You see that you are wrong.

Nope, I've bought from them. Yes, they have some refurbs as well as
new. Every price range from $65 has something to offer. A sucker is
someone that buys a unit that knowingly has problems and comes with no
warranty at all.
Funny thing is, you are selling a used unit that may or may not work,
but want to buy a cradle and it must be in pristine condition. At
least you provided a good laugh.
BTW, I have a Pentium computer for sale. $3500 new but I'll et it go
for $3000. Interested?
