So, I've never owned a PlayStation 3, but I've wanted to pick one up to complete my collection of the seventh generation consoles. Someone near me is selling a PlayStation 3 with the HDMI, controller, and an upgraded 500GB hard drive along with 22 games all for $100. I want to jailbreak this console, but I've been searching around and seem to find that PlayStation 3 consoles can only be jailbroken on firmware version 3.55. I messaged the seller and they say the console's on firmware version 4.81. So my main questions are the following:
  1. Is this a good deal for what it's worth?
  2. Can the firmware be downgraded for jailbreak and is the fact that you need to downgrade to jailbreak true?
  3. Is this a bad idea that I'm even considering buying this?
Any actual help is appreciated.

Yes it's a good deal pending it actually works. If you want jailbroken, you will need an E3 flasher which will require opening your console and some work to get a working downgrade. 3.55 is the highest FW you can jailbreak on. I tell people if they aren't savvy to just buy a console preinstalled with 3.55 on Ebay or wherever to get them started.

Thanks, fam. You're the first person who's actually given me a response. I'll go ahead and grab it while it's still up for sale. How much does an E3 flasher normally cost? Looking around, I see a range of prices. Anyplace reliable I can grab one that you know of?
