Ebay for Laptops

  akzah 20:08 12 Aug 2003


I am thinking of getting a laptop for less than £300 which is at least 500mhz so I can do word proccesing and programming.

Do you think Ebay is good way to pickup a bargain, if so any tips or should I visit the computer fairs on Sunday ??

Thanks for any advice

If I was buying a second user Laptop, then I think I would use PC fair or buy from someone I know. Still no guarantee of previous use/mis-use, but at least you can inspect and try it out. j.

I agree totally with Djohn, when buying secondhand there is little in the way of warranty should things go wrong whether ebay or computer fair, but at least with the latter you have the chance to inspect the pc first.
