It would help if you could tell us what it's going to be used for?

What size - 13", 15", 17" or one of those mini 'netbooks'?

Does it need a Blu-Ray drive, or be able to run 3D games?

£600 on a laptop off eBay? Don't even thing about it - again! G

Hi
Been searching myself for a friend's daughter, and strangely enough after visiting numerous websites came across this one by accident and they have a good selection,

Hope this helps.

Hi, all.

I bought a couple of Dell laptops from different sellers on e-bay.

The second seller is in the link below.

Item title: NEW DELL Inspiron 1525 ,2.4 ,4GIG,320HD,3YR WARRANTY

Seller User ID: thechef01

Your total is:
£499.99 per item
£0.00 insurance (included in S&H)
£0.00 postage/packaging

-----
£499.99 = Total

Before I bought, I configured an indential machine on the Dell website and figured that I was saving £218 on e-bay. Obviously, I used the normal care in choosing the seller.

I checked the machine out on arrival including cpuZ and it was exactly as specified, with the correct back-ups. The seller certainly deserves to be recognised as bona-fide.

Cheers,

Ceri

By the way, this was early September and I saw the price as a "buy-it-now" so did not wait for an auction, since it seemed quite a steal. Then the auctions went up to about £50 above my price, so the "buy-it-now" prices followed the auction price up.

Cheers,

Ceri
