I recall paying roughly $300 to ship an entire Octane2, and just over $500 to ship a Mac Pro, with a 23 inch LCD etc.
Somehow I get the feeling that Ebay sellers are either scaly , or shipping companies are opportunistic.
It's not really insane, at least from the seller. He states in the auction description that he only ships by UPS (ok, you may discuss this, but at least it's indicated in the auction description). If you get a quote on the UPS website, I guess you'll get the same amount.
In fact I just won an auction from the same seller, and the shipping quote I got myself on ups website was roughly the same as the final shipping charges I got from him...
