Are you talking about the home edition fireball? Skip it - save your money for something better. That home edition will get old real quick

Any pinball machine that has home edition on it, has always been and will be a dog shit on it's good day.

Hi Packerscott , welcome to Pinside.
There are three different versions of Fireball

None of them are tabletop models. Can you post a picture of what you're looking at?

It’s probably not the best pin, but for $325 you’ll have fun and learn about pinball. Then you can go get a “better” pin. Should be able to sell for the same price you paid. I say go for it.

Post a picture.
Not sure what you mean by 'Tabletop'. Home fireballs which are less than professional, all have legs and I would not consider them 'tabletop'.
