I am considering buying a pc from ebay "powersellers" the reviews are good , the money is secure (paypal or cc both secure) but, i might be a mug! What do you think??

I almost got ripped off by an ebay scam artist, selling a brand new dell laptop for half price... However the chap refused to give me the serial no of the laptop as I was going to check with Dell to ensure that the laptop was not stolen and was legal.
However if you're buying from a person with loads of positive ratings then I would say go for it; you should be safe! Just remember the cost of P and P on top of the cost of the computer if it's being imported from USA/Hong Kong.
Good luck

I have been looking on there to the computers look very good don't they but are they to good to be true I will be interested to see what replys you get. On saying that though I have bought quite a few things from ebay and they have always turned up, quicker than online shops sometimes I suppose there are a few dodgy characters on there but if you read the reviews it gives you some idea what the person is like selling

A friend of mine bought a PC from Ebay for his sister and shes delighted with it, the thing I think is look at the rating of the person you're buying from and be sure what you are buying ie onboard sound, does it come with a full Windows XP disk etc, is it onboard graphics can you upgrade it if it is, that sort of thing.
