Second hand I presume. Ok for the money but I think I would want to know how much use it had had as you can get a reasonable spec laptop brand new for £300.

Make sure the battery is ok, ne batteries are expensive, see how long it will run on battieries.

Declined to buy it; reviews not too good and feel a bit iffy about it. Gut feeling you know? !

Thanks for all your input
